Average food, decent spice, texture of noodles was ok. Service was great. The pumpkin chicken curry was very good.

We ordered many different items; some better than others. The fish cakes were great and the sauce tasty. The fresh rolls were warmed and soggy (not recommended). The curries were spicy as were the noodles. Overall, a good meal, especially for the price.
