Might just be the best meal we have had in Australia. Starters both epic, prawn and green bean salad and the Mixed Satay. Mains of Mai Goreng, excellent, and Chicken Curry, very tasty but expected the sauce to be thicker. Plenty to eat in every...More

Superb food, exceptional service. All four of us were pleased with the taste and appearance of the dishes and we all had them very different . The place was packed on a late Sunday evening. Should I say more?

Great food and service in both indoor and outdoor settings. Very surprised to find such a wonderful restaurant attached to a lodging facility. Reservations recommended.

Despite being a brisk walk out of town this place was well worth it. Satays were lovely and traditional and the variety of curries we shared for mains were excellent. Service attentive and friendly and good explanations of the food. Really good value.
