“Great food at a low price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

This little restaurant does a good takeaway business as well as eat-in. It is BYO as well. The food was excellent and it was an inexpensive night out. The staff were attentive and service very good.

“Small but friendly & excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Have visited on three occasions over past 6 months - when needing a quick last minute meal out. Even though a smaller restaurant we were always able to obtain a table and the menu offered a great range of Asian cuisine. The service is quick & friendly and the price does not reflect the quality of food offered.

“Very yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

always a favourite choice in Riccarton! It is always abusy wee restaurant, so bookings are essential, you can get take away too which is always a plus if you want their amazing food at home!
Gone here many times over the years, a shame I am not in Christchurch anymore, miss Saigon Star! The meals are prompt and good value as you get a lot!
