My "Thai" curry was ... I don't know. Not Thai. Not Japanese. Not Indian. I don't know. My wife had Singapore noodles. They were good. If was fine. But only went once and was immediately across the street from our hotel. Neither of us wanted to return

This a really good unpretentious local restaurant which offers some of the tastiest food on the island and at some of the lowest prices! You'd be daft not to visit.
