Service was exceptional! Very friendly and attentive staff. Waiters were also very knowledgeable about food and ingredients and able to give detailed recommendations. Decor and atmosphere was also chilled and relaxing. Food was lovely. We opted for the beef Chow mein and asked for it to be made extra spicy. When the food arrived, my husband felt his food wasn't...

The food here was very good. Loved the fragrant Chicken green curry and Malaysian Chilli Prawn curry. The care in each dish could be noted. The disappointment would be on the pricing-portion ratio. For a more expensive than average restaurant, the portions were a little small. Not much rice for 4 people on the set menu, and the measly 6... More
