Great decor, lots of interesting interior design, lighting etc. Great super quick service with wait staff who know what they are talking about & a well staffed kitchen too. I had venison curry on my last two visits, really something else, great flavours & well cooked. Great menu, very varied with somethingto suit most palates. Prices are very reasonable considering this is a city centre restaurant just sixty seconds from the viaduct area. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Came here with a friend on a Wednesday night when it was quiet. We saw six defferent staff members at least twice each! Loved the food, the Lamb was particularly good.

Very good selection of food from a variety of Asian regions.. Fantastically prepared and nicely presented.
Size of dishes is more than adequate for most people, but having to order rice etc as an extra is unusual. There is a good selection of rices to this is likely the reason and the coconut rice is my favourite.

Restaurant is rather crowded and badly set-out and very noisy. The wooden seats are a bit uncomfortable if you are there for a while.
Service is very dependant on who you get as one visit were the waitress was fantastic and the next time not so flash

Cost is on the average size for Auckland and the food is value for money considering the quality and presentation.
