Been lots a while ago, food always good and nice service.Decor is great and the outdoor seating is the best on a warm Raro night. Plenty of parking out the back and scooter parking in the front.

Really good Asian fusion. Pad Thai - not quite like home, but excellent all the same. Squid was tasty and tender, quite an achievement. Drinks excellent, and prices pretty good too. Happy to recommend to families, couples...

This is a pleasant, clean place, nice and airy with prompt service. MInd you, it was early and we were the only people in the place. The menu has a wide range of Asian food, Chinese, Thai and Indonesian. An enjoyable meal, with obviously fresh ingredients. Very good, we'll be back.
