I have eaten here more than 20 times and tried about half of the menu. I do not know how they can serve such delicious food in generous serves for the price. Big winners are the Chili Chicken and the Won Ton Noodle Soup. The food is Taiwanese in style and offers "small eats" "big eats" and "just eats", the... More

What an amazing venue and just fantastic food. I can't fault anything at this establishment. The deserts are just amazing too if you have space left.

Booked a table for Saturday night & we were thankful we did - the place was packed. Interesting and varied menu with lots of small, medium and large dishes to choose from. Presentation of food was good. Service was attentive and friendly. Menu was reasonably priced which made the visit even more enjoyable. Will happily return.

I live nearby so I've been to this place lots of time ever since it open. Don't think Jack knows me anymore but I've seen this place evolving and their menu changes quiet a bit as well. My favourite honey glazed chicken is still there though and it still taste good. They have went from serving set bento dinner menu... More

This is a great little cafe for a quick Asian food fix. Food is tasty and service is fast and friendly. Prices are reasonable. The place is always full and busy and booking is advisable. One thing though, it is a noisy, it is loud and not a place for convivial conversation.

We were recommended this little restaurant by the Hotel we were staying in so thought we would give it a try. It is waiting for tables only on Fri/Sat night (probably the other days of the week as week!). A cozy atmosphere with friendly staff. But, I would put up with a lot for the food they served. Excellent is... More

Had an awesome time at Peko Peko. The place was packed full, however, we still found a table....the staff were friendly, genuine and super helpful. Was a bit strange having a shared table, but was well worth a visit! Highly reccomend the custard chicken!

The reception staff recommended Peko Peko from a list we were provided with when we checked in at our apartment, having driven all day from Adelaide. I had already read good reviews on TripAdvisor when looking for somewhere for dinner. When we arrived the restaurant was full - always a good sign - and we were advised to come back... More

Visited Peko Peko last night. Very extensive and interesting menu. Place was very busy, so would recommend making a booking! The wasabi prawns as a starter to share were great! They come as four to a plate, so two per person is plenty. We had 4 x big eats to share and that was quite a lot of food. We... More
