Chicken and satay for starters with Beef and sticky rice. Service was very quick. Venue started off quiet and gradually it busier creating more atmosphere. Meat dishes really good, struggled with the sticky rice. Sadly I even had to wait to pay!

I have been here more times than I can count. Never had a complaint. The food and service is amazing. If you want to go on a Friday or Saturday night booking is essential. Can’t wait for my next visit.
