Having been coming here on and off since this great restaurant opened, the food and service is still fantastic. The seafood dishes are our favourite and the sauces are the tastiest I have ever had. Menu and wines are very reasonably priced and our bill the other night was around the same for a pub meal but there is no... More

The laksa was quite nice, as was the chicken roti. But we ordered a curry beef dish and the meat was dry inside and the coconut rice was mushy and not very nice. Service was good though and speedy.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We are disappointed you thought the beef was dry, this is not a complaint we have had previously I will look into it with the butcher. We want you to please please come back and try us again and hopefully everything will be good. Jack. More

Despite the restaurant being full, the service was still great. This restaurant offers a great menu and is sure to satisfy the most fastidious of taste buds. The clean and warm ambient creates a relaxing setting. We were so impressed, we already made another booking with a larger group. A must visit restaurant.
