During a day of filming in town we popped in here for lunch. Their food is good value, delicious with a great range of Asian delights.

We shared two noodle dishes and a friend had chicken. We also ordered samosas and spring rolls.

Then we stayed for coffee which was good too. There is a cosy couch and the staff were friendly and welcoming.

All in all this is a great Asian cafe and maybe some of the best Asian food in Palmerston North.

This place was a great find for us as we weren't expecting to find any decent ethnic food in the small town that Palmy is but it was great. I liked the variety of food offered and although the laksa we had wasn't quite the traditional kind, it was unique enough for our liking and the place had a nice vibe to it.

We visited here on a Friday evening around 8pm. The staff happily took our order despite the two signs saying 'Kitchen Closed'… this was great for us. The food was good… fresh and tasty… but huge portions so we took a 'doggie-bag' away. Also, we really enjoyed the watermelon bubble tea which was a first for us. We like it so much we bought another one to take away. This cafe really is a cafe… basic tables/chairs in a simple setting. Impressed with their extensive anime comic book on-site library for customers.

They have an excellent selection of many tasty dishes. Bubble tea is good. Atmosphere is cozy. A great lunch place for couples, families and very small groups.
