If you want to go for a change instead of Chinese or Malaysian food, this is a good treat to your belly. I didn't go to Trip Advisor site to read the review but I was by accident found this restaurant in another food website. We ordered a Mixed Platter for two persons which contains 4 sticks pork satay, 2 pork ribs, 3 piri piri chicken wings, sweet potato chips for 48.50 ringgit. I must say the pork satay is super delicious! The meat is tender, the marinate is yummy, the sauce is spicy but you will keep dipping your satay in the sauce. The chicken wings are topped with some citron juice which gives extra taste. Potato chips are crispy but a bit greasy. We ordered two Jasmine iced tea but there is not much tea taste in our drinks. Though the price of 3 course set dinner (25 ringgit) is at good value but I still recommend you to try the Mixed Platter so that you could taste different taste meat at the same time.

I loved this place! They have very good options for vegetarians (the mushroom burger is AMAZING!) and I really liked how they keep everything rich but light. Their chips are really nice, like shaved potato fried really crispy. Their meat dishes looked amazing, too. It made me reconsider being veg :)

Just had the dinner special. 25 rgt ( about $AU 9 for main, drink and dessert. The huge shredded pork burger with veg chips and salad was followed by delicious chocolate cake with ice cream. It was all yummy and more than I could eat. A pleasant atmosphere and comfortably cooled.

Disregard anything negative, believe me-the food here rules! The Pork Belly wrap is awsome!
tucked away next to a more open visual bar/restaurant, Cristao provides an intimate air-con setting with a great choice on offer, Its clean and cheap to eat big!- my wife had the pulled pork burger, it was huge and oozed flavour, marinated pork flakes of delicious-ness!, the burger was the size of your head!
Go on, give it a crack, you wont be disappointed!
From Wade and Sinead, Perth, Western Australia- Go Eagles!!
