We went here last night based on the positive TripAdvisor reviews, but the experience was so lacklustre that it prompted me to create my own account here. The squid with garlic and butter was just greasy and bland, with no seasoning. The duck with lemongrass and chilli was borderline tasteless, with grey duck that looked and tasted more like beef and next to no chilli. We asked for some extra but it never arrived. Next up was the beef skewers with sesame, which was OK and probably the best dish of the night but we didn't actually order it - we asked for the beef satay and confirmed twice with the waitress but still ended up with the wrong dish. We ate it anyway because at that stage we just wanted to finish eating and leave. The cocktails were pretty decent and cheap, which bumps this up to a two-star rating. Of course, we ordered them first and they took a lifetime to arrive.
There was also a rat running around the ceiling just above the dining area. True story. Avoid this place unless you have no taste. It's possible they've toned down the flavours to suit a safer western palate but it shouldn't sacrifice actual quality.
