Was a well laid out little restaurant. Food was great, staff were friendly and they even recommended us onto another of their restaurants for the following night. La Castita, which was also amazing!

We enjoyed our visit here. The Asian flavours were a bit hit or miss. My favourite thing to eat was green papaya salad (raw grated with flavouring). The ladies working were lovely and do a great job.

We hadn't booked which is a bad move but the manager was very accomodating and sat us up at the bar with a few drinks to wait. They even took out orders before we got our table.

My husband and I had an awesome dinner here with a great starter (scallops and vegi tempura) and two very lovely vietnamese fish curries. The fish was excellent, portions big. Man, when it say spicy on the menu they mean it! Service was attentive, and service personel veryfriendly. Excellent price value!
