“Pandanus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Great food and very friendly service. Loved the fact that the restaurant always made sure you got back to your accommodation i.e. by car

“Perfect in every way... Simply the best by a long shot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I dined here with a friend on a visit to Lord Howe 6 years ago, it was great then - I can easily say that it's even better now! The Kingfish dinner that we had was scrumptous - just melted in my mouth - the accompaniments were just as delicious too. Oh, and the entree of polenta chips (that I shared with my husband) were the best I've ever eaten. Well done Chef! :-)
The service was exceptional - Rebecca was our waitress and she deserves special mention here because she was just delightful, attentive and very professional as she looked after the entire restaurant on her own. The way Rebecca conducted herself just had to be mentioned - we noticed it was not only us who tipped her - others must have thought the same - well done Rebecca - keep up the good work.
All in all, the food, the service, the ambience made for a perfect dinner on our final evening on our Lord Howe holiday.

“Welcoming atmosphere and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We ate here 4 times during our 8 days stay.The service was excellent, the staff were friendly and the food was good. Although the menu was limited the Asian menu at the weekend added variety and all the dishes we sampled were inventive, beautifully cooked and good value. At least one special was listed every day.The serving size was sufficient for filling even the hungry walkers. Overall the meals compared very favourably with those offered at more expensive restaurants on the island. Glasses of the house wine were generous. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the place was full every evening. Booking advised!

“Delicious Asian Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Come here on the weekend and sample some absolutely delicious asian/malaysian delights. I don't usually like squid but their salt n pepper squid was the best ever. (Had it again through the week but not as good - different chef). This restaurant also has a lovely ambience and the cleanest bathrooms.
