Very tasty food, we got a takeaway lunch, popular place with a queue building up for take away lunch. The nasi goreng, singapore noodles and fried aubergine were lovely. Highly recommended.

Malay/Singapore food Excellent food - the chicken curry is really good - as good as you would get in Singapore. The chicken skewers have been marinated in some liquid magic and are delicious. The vegetarian ma po tofu is also excellent with very good balance of Sichuan pepper & chilli but without masses of oil Really good friendly service

My husband and I were visiting the Blue Mountains for one day, we both fancied oriental food and we were not disappointed. Fresh, hot, well presented, flavoursome and with brilliant service. It was BYO with no corkage charge. I left my umbrella behind and the wonderful owner chased us down the road with it! Thank you !
