Came here for dinner as all the other restaurants were very busy and we hadn't been here before. The food came out super fast only took 5 minutes or so. The meals were lunch time style and size meals but still very tasty and well presented. Overall not too bad

The staff were friendly, helpful and the food was fantastic! Service was quick too and the best thing, even though they were busy, you were not rushed at all! Highly recommended! Will be back!

This place is tucked between max brenner and kamikazi tepyanki. Great food and excellent service. Food was on the table within minutes and waiters made sure we were looked after.

Service was great, extremely friendly staff. Food was the best Malay I have had on the Gold Coast. Service was quick and clean. Food was fresh and the portions were quite large. If you are small eater, it is best to share. OR NOT.. Amazing little place @ Robina Town Center. Thank you

BFF and I decided on a movie and dinner Tuesday night. Independence Day(thank you Geoff for making it bearable) and dinner at River Penang. A cold night on the GC, but we were fearless and sat out side. Asked the young waitress if we could have the heater on and she happily flicked the switch. Combine that with a hot... More

After some debacle, our table ended up each with a satay dish, which were all tasty although quite variable. Veg curry puffs were a bit odd in flavour. Be warned- the menu descriptions and photos do not match current plates very well. This is important if you are looking for a certain level of spicy hot, or presence/ absence of... More

Genuine Malaysian hawker food: kuayteow needed additional Sambal and could have benefited from more flavour, but the Hau fan was 10 out of 10 full of rich broth and generous seafood portions with beautifully cooked fish and prawns. Well done!

Fast helpful service. Outstanding laksa: huge bowls, super tasty. The vegetarian chicken in black bean sauce was an unexpected delight. My beautiful wife just declared this her new favorite Gold Coast restaurant!

The first impression was terrible, we wanted to dine outside but the lady (owner I presume) bluntly regected our request saying she did not have time hence she would not clean the table and made us sit inside, she could have been polite in the was she spoke but she was not, we could have walked away but I am...
