“Authentic quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We didn't feel like eating out so decided to get take away instead. One of my husband's favourite dishes is Kway Teow and he was not disappointed. They made his dish hot and spicy as he asked, and my Nasi Goreng was mild and beautifully flavoured. Our entrees were delicious, Chicken satay sticks with a tasty satay sauce, and for my husband a Prawn wrapped in a batter and deep fried which he said was to die for. The service was excellent and the lady very friendly and helpful. Servings were generous, and we have decided next time to have a sit down meal.

“Great value - a cut above the competition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Went for an impromptu lunch on Sunday. Food was fantastic, reasonably priced and the service was friendly and efficient.

We had curry leaf prawns and a beef dish with dried chillies. Both were rich, flavoursome and very well presented. We will definitely go again.

“Heavy on fried food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Visited with overseas guests. Service was very good. Unfortunately, the food was a disappointment. It surprised us how much of the food was 'deep fried'. Perhaps, it was just those dishes that we ordered. It reminds me to ask more questions before I order (at any restaurant) next time. The worst dish was the soft shell crab. It just tasted wrong which makes me think they weren't prepared correctly. Will I go again to this restaurant? No, I won't.
