This is one of my favourite restaurants in our little mecca. Amazing food, friendly service and a great atmosphere. A must try are the crocodile spring rolls, there is enough on the plate for you to share with a friend, especially if you want to fit in that crème brulee for dessert.

This is the nicest place to eat in Emerald, I think. We went there for my daughter's 18th birthday dinner and were not disappointed. Service is pleasant but not outstanding. Luckily, all is forgiven for the great food.

I had the homemade pasta and meatballs. the pasta was enjoyable, but the meatballs were hard as rocks and were obviously not made freshly that evening. I tried two different white wines which I drink regularly, both had that... More
