My wife and I went here by accident after not being able to get in to another restaurant due to a function. It was quiet but the menu looked ok, and in the end we were happy we did.

We tried a couple of Malaysian dishes and both were particular nice with good flavours, they both had little touches such as pickles we added to the over experience. As it is a bit more up market the prices are a bit higher than the but he side of the ride style restaurants but it was worth it.

The only real downside was that the rice in both our meals was a bit under cooked, hence the loss of a star.

Eventually found the restaurant which was easy in the end as it is on the main drag but slightly disarmingly our lovely cab driver or any of his mates had heard of it. Nevertheless when we got there we found the staff to be lovely and welcoming and the surroundings tasteful and contemporary.

The menu was as seems to be the the norm on the island quite small but the food was delicious.

Price of food was a little high for the amount of food we received(3 KIng prawns in the curry dish) but to be fair we had enough to eat and any more would I suppose been greedy. If you plan on sharing a dish it might be worth bearing this in mind.

Due to it being low season the restaurant was not very busy which was a shame as if was a bit busier I can imagine it having a great atmosphere.

Two small negatives,
1. They have TV's on two walls which detracts from the lovely decor and draws the eye especially when the restaurant was quiet.

2. The "Muzak" played was too loud and heavy glam rock covers are totally naff. If the owners insist on playing music play something easy on the ear and not winky plonky Whitesnake covers.

That aside it is well worth a visit for the great food and lovely staff.
