“Great Food”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Stayed in rarotonga for 7 nights and ate at The Rickshaw twice. The vegetarian meals were delicious! We also tried a Vietnamese fish dish with tamarind also very tasty. Good service and great food which is reasonably priced.

“Went back 4 times in 10 days!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Regardless of budget, this restaurant rates highly as far as we are concerned. Casual dining sure, but tasty Asian meals at very affordable prices. The Beef Red Curry (very like a Rendang) is so good that we had it each time we visited and chose a different dish to go with it. Great place to share a couple of dishes together. Be sure to get there before 8.30pm - we could have eaten there 5 times but arrived too late! Well done team - we will be back, so keep that chilly bush growing just by our table!

“Yum”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Loved this place - small and quaint and the food is great. A real taste of Asia in Rarotonga. Portions aren't huge so if you are a big eater order a selection - they're all good.

“Nice people and food.”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Good food and friendly service but we left feeling disappointed, as it didn't meet our expectations and was over priced. We didn't see a menu before picking the Rickshaw but I think we were hoping for Vietnamese/Asian dining. We both thought our meals weren't really any different than other fusion style meals we have had on Rarotonga. Nice for one visit but we won't return.

“Best food in Raro”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

This place is a hidden gem amongst overpriced resort mediocrity. Very authentic Malaysian food that is absolutely beautiful and very well priced. If you only eat out once eat here, second flame tree just down the road :)
