This is an iconic budget place to eat, but because if their success they really don't seem to care if a customer has a bad experience with their food. My father ordered steak and I ordered cray fish. The steak came quickly and was excellent, the crayfish came 15 mins later along with the drinks we initially ordered. I ate much of the crayfish before I can across one that I had to spit out because it was clearly badly off. I called a waiter over and explained. The waiter disappeared and then another more senior came and asked what was the problem, I explained again and suggested she smelt the plate. She did and pulled her head away quickly and then just walked off with the plate without comment. Later when I asked for the bill I was surprised to find that they were asking me to pay the whole cost of the crayfish. I explained to the waiter that that couldn't be the case as one of the crayfish was off. Another waiter was sent over and he said I should have complained at the start. I said that the dish was in a heavy gravy sauce how was I to know it was off until I ate it. I said as a compromise why didn't they take 50% of the cost off. Instead they deducted $4 off for one crayfish. And not one word of apology. I live just around the corner from the restaurant, I will never return.

Awesome food, awesome price, awesome quality!! This is one place where you can practically find food fusion - Thai, Chinese, Malay, Indian, Western. I've been here several times and was never disappointed with each visit. Seafood was all cooked superb and portions were generous! Tried their clams, crayfish, prawns, steak, Prata (of course), nasi goreng (fried rice), well...the list will keep on going. Anyhow, you people have got to get down to this mouth watering place!

The service was ok, quick, but the waitress had a certain chip on her shoulder. The Asia portion of our meal was outstanding, very delicious. We were disappointed with our India cuisine though. Overall good experience and we would return.

They have really good spicy foods, mostly with Nasi Goring. They have a variety of Prata (the Cheese and Banana w/cheese) are a must-try! The curry is just cooked to my taste, not too spicy and there's no after taste. The place is situated right just very near to a bus stop near the heart of Orchard. They open late at night and closes in the morning. Just right for a late supper catch-up with friends and an early breakfast after clubbing!

Serves food and drinks at a very reasonable price.

Price range of meals starts at $5.00
