“great cocktails. decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I loved the cocktails here because they are more fruity (you taste less of the alcohol). The prawns came in this super tasty flavorful soup/sauce thing. nice satays as well

“Christmas Dinner 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We wanted something different rather than turkey and all the trimmings so we had steamed red snapper at Islandish instead. Rather a long way to go! Great service, friendly staff. I have to say that when we had the steamed snapper a second time, it wasnt as good (not so much lemon grass/chillies etc) but when we mentioned it, the boss said he would tell the relief chef to up the ante a bit!! We ate there 3 times in ten days so we must have been fairly happy as we had choice of 00's

“Rip off - falls bill, slow service, less than average food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Looks like this restaurant is either loved or hated! We've been because it looked nice and has apparently fresh fish nicely decorated outside. Looks aren't everything is all I can say. Our total dinner time was 4 hours and I do not recall having had at least one course as a group. Slow, slow, slow. Tom Yam was ok in terms of taste, but they really only took the cheapest ingredients. Who wants 4 onions in one soup? Instead zero mushrooms and only 3 shrimp? Rest of the food also wasn't impressive. Brought us small glasses of beer after dinner - as if that would cover bad service and poor food? Worst of all- the bill was incorrect. They wanted to charge us for items we didn't have and wrong amounts. Seriously??!! Give it a miss!

“Fairly good food, relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Very friendly manager. Clams and squid were good - tasted quite Indian though rather than malay (had curry leaves). Went in the afternoon so it was nice and quiet. Very relaxed atmosphere. Bizarre lounge music - YMCA In very slow motion by lounge girl singer on the tape player

“Good Ethics of Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Islandish is a good place to hangout, pleasant relaxing environment and fun. Too pack of night guest/customers. The staff work well on the serve conflicts and do their best to make it possible for me & my family not to miss our meal. Some guest/customer appeared to be rude due to some delay on the food (sometimes we need to understand festive season everywhere were pack) Anyway, the staff's continue be friendly to served them well!! Salute to all Islandish staff on this.
