This is real local food, absolutely delicious and surprisingly affordable considering the lovely dinning experience you get. Fresh authentic food, friend staff and students nice environment all wrapped up in a resonible price tag, what more do you need?

Lovely riverside restaurant. Its popularity is justified. We had a platter of starters followed by lemongrass stuffed with chicken and fish wrapped in banana leaves. Everything looked wonderful and tasted even better. Great restaurant. Highly recommended
