Reasonable price and good service

Always visit this restaurant at least 1-2 times per week since I have moved to live in Gold Coast. Staff always prompt response and can remember my orders. Love this place.

Fest time there I tried meals that weren't on the list of popular meals and it was great but wasn't bad either. Went back to try something from the list....I shall continue to go there and pick from this list as there is so much to choose from and what I have chosen to date have been delicious 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽

We have been coming here quite often since we moved to Robina. Service was hit and miss but if you don't mind the food is great. I haven't tried everything but the best two dishes me and my husband always go for are Laksa noodle and Sambal Prawn. The portion is very generous which I've never finished mine. Some people...

Slack service, lazy unenthusiastic staff. Meals forgotten and delayed and no water bought to table after requesting it twice. Portion sizes were small and the food was really average. Dissapointing. Restaurant atmosphere was pretty much zero.

Delicious food served very quickly by lovely attentive staff. The Baba honey chicken is to die for! We eat here at least once a week and the food and service is constantly great. Well worth a try if you love Malasian.

This is a little gem at the Robina Town Centre. Lovely food very authentic well priced with a Chicken Laska for around $13.00 only been there once but like what I had. Perfect little place for a quick lunch or at night

Amongst the choices of eating establishments along the promenade the River Penang is well received. I tried the Combination Laksa which offered a nice size bowl with good amounts of seafood, chicken & eggplant with a well balanced soup base. It was busy during lunch, though the service was fast & order was served quick.

Always great food at very reasonable prices. I have tried almost everything on the extensive menu now and there is not one dish I would like to have again. A great place to pop into when your in the area or shopped out at the mall.
