Getting seated, ordering our drinks and placing or order were all done by different staff members because we were ignored a lit and had to flag down staff walking past our table
The venue is very pokey and small and we felt like we were seated in a walk way
The food was ok but a far cry from what we expected based on the prices
Overall the meal was fine but I wouldn't rush back there

Our waiters were helpful and informative and the food was great. I ordered the tuna done two ways and was disappointed that they'd run out of tuna but the replacement salmon was good. My companions ordered the mud crab which was on special and that wasn't too easy to eat - should have had a bit more cracking and pulling apart to make it manageable but the flavours were mighty fine. My children enjoyed the dumplings, singapore noodles and gado gado. That's my second visit and on both occasions I've loved it so I'll be back again.

Food was tasty but disappointed to see around 3-4 baby cockroaches in various locations (on our table, on the wall and floor). I get this is a beachside location and restaurant has open front but can say I haven't seen this in any other restaurant in Byron this week. Staff very professional but sadly let down by the pest problem.
