“Worth seeking out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Fairly straight forward Chinese cooking with good service. The owner is very lively and attentive. I had sweet and sour fish and my wife had chicken in black pepper sauce (although we actually ordered beef!) both with boiled rice. We had a spring roll to start which was't too inspiring but quite substantial. The food was freshly cooked, tasty and reasonable sized portions.

“Pretty good and amazing manager..read on”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Food was good - mix of local and western. Obviously pulling in clients due to tripadvisor so very busy with tourists. Only found out it was cash only half way through meal. "Pay me tomorrow" was the managers response. No ifs or buts. That in itself is well deserved praise for this place. Give them a go and stick to local fare.

“Restuarant with great food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We tried this restaurant for lunch and were impressed with the food so we thought we would give it a try for dinner. We ended up there 4 out of 5 of our remaining nights. The menu is chinese/malay. Whilst it is a simple menu there was plenty of variety. All the dishes prepared were freshly prepared and excellent. Our favourites included the beef rendang, salt and pepper squid, garlic prawns and deep fried ice cream. The service provided by Amy, her husband and staff was superb. The atmoshphere is relaxed. We were not alone in liking this restaurant - we saw many other returning customers who enjoyed the food, service and friendly atmoshphere. The restaurant is child friendly too.
