Was a quick eats dinner venue that had a table available.

This restaurant was like others we've tried that try to represent the cuisine of multiple countries.

Even though the words "inspired by" were used on the menu extensively, it seemed to be an excuse for the flavours not being quite on song (our meals were favourites from Malaysia, India and Vietnam).

We were there on Mother's Day and they ran out of a few items. Food was good but service was average . Everything came at once, starters and entree and wine wasn't delivered until after the entree was served. Food was good but timing off.

Haven't been here for a long time; I felt like a bowl of Pho (for medicinal purposes). The decor has changed and I am pleased to say the new seating is so comfortable. A quaint blend of minimalistic and oriental intrigue. To say the Pho was brilliant is to do it an injustice. It was simply out of this world; and yes I did feel better. Tippy welcomed me with a warm hug and his wonderful smile and made my day.

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
