“Worst of the Worst”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This restaurant is overpriced. The flavour of the food is terrible - thick sauces, stodgy noodles, handfuls of raw spring onion, fake Asian kitsch bordering on racism ('You ling, we bling".... seriously?!?).... I don't even know where to begin with this restaurant!

Singapore Noodles - should be made of rice vermiceilli, not wheat noodles.

Char Kuay Teow - crunchy reconstituted rice noodles with a thick sweet sauce.

This restaurant is like the "Maggi Noodles" or "Kanton Sauces" version of Chinese food.

Our Chinese friends commented "This is unimaginably bad food - even the worst of Western food beats what we had for lunch".

I seriously doubt that this proprietor has ever actually eaten authentic Chinese, Japanese or Vietnamese food. All I can say is that he has a sweet deal going with fake Asian flavours at outrageous prices.

We enjoyed a variety of dishes including a laksa and tom yum soup plus nasi goreng, dumplings and spring rolls. All were excellent.

“ok food, good prices, hip ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Nothing special about this noodle house, except for the fact that it provides a place to have noodles in an otherwise noodle-less town.

Food was fine, prices were fine, I wasn't impressed or dissatisfied with anything.

I love noodles, so I would go again.
