Accidentally ended up in Frankston with a few hours to kill. Around lunchtime. So jumped on TA and searched restaurants. This one was number 1 so off we went. Great service and extensive menu. We just had a few entrees and shared. They were all nice. Wasabi prawns we're fresh and delicious. Dish of the day was the quail. Beautiful!... More

Got a takeaway. Tom Yum soup was tasty. Crispy Calimari was also tasty, but soggy. Singapore Noodles were bland. Staff were very nice - albeit only a takeaway. Overall, I would probably not go back.
