I've been here a number of times, most recently with a group of people from work. Everyone enjoyed their meals (as has always been the case) and had a great time. The service is always good. I'd definitely give the fresh spring rolls a go, they're delicious!

The food is excellent and is also BYO and available in Takeaway..This restaurant is always busy and pays to reserve. We enjoy going and meeting the family on a Sunday night.

Always busy Friday night but we didn't mind the wait, with a good red in hand. Service with a smile as always and the Nasi Goreng with prawns although not as spicy as usual but still had lots of prawns. The Viet Spring Rolls and Pork Ball entrees always yummy, and my partner had the Viet Salad with Chicken as... More

A party of 14 that was quickly served with very attentive staff. Food was well presented. Some felt including me that the food balance was out. It was salty and overly acidic which was dominant in those who choose the coconut sauce based dishes. I had the vietnamese fish boat and the delicate fish was spoilt by the sauce. Those... More

Flavours, taste and service you can always depend on. The young female staff were excellent. Always a winner with young, old and families. Make sure you make a booking though as the tables always appear to be full. The only thing I don't like is all the couples being lined up along the wall! Not a lot of privacy.

I love the variety of their Thai food. I go at least once a month and have never been disappointed. The staff are friendly and Laksa is delicious.
