Its a nice place and the food was nice, the hot(spice) weren't hot, neither was the sauce on the table. Its cuisine is Asian, so it basically covers the whole of Asia food wise. I would go again, just wish they would focus on doing one style really well.

Yummy dinner here. The Ginger fish is recommended. My son had the honey chicken but he shouldn't have. He enjoyed my dish a lot more. Go for plates you like and you won't be disappointed. Nice to have some well cooked Asian food in the Cooks. Great ambience too, in a garden like setting.

My Fiance and I went to The Rickshaw 3-4 times and it was amazing food each time. The Bo Lac Luc was to die for!! Loved the Cantonese Lemon Chicken too. Food will not disappoint!

I was not feeling the best and we just wanted a bowl of soup so headed to the Rickshaw late one afternoon. We got there a little before they opened but they graciously let us sit inside and wait. The soup was delicious and the waitress was so thoughtful, she brought my ginger ale with ice on the side just... More

Having spent many months in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Singapore over the past three decades, we've eaten a lot of the dishes from the cuisines represented on the Rickshaw menu. Based on our experience, I'd say you may well be disappointed if you go expecting an authentic beef rendang or nasi goreng. That said, the restaurant's interpretation... More

Repeat return here, this time for a takeaway for four. Wonderful food, a little pricing for a take away but as there was nothing left to clear away you can say it was worth it. Will be back

Family of 4 dined here, loved the ambience and the menu is quite extensive. Meals were quite small to feed 4 and not a lot of meat in the dishes.I enjoyed the meal but the price really shocked me. A couple of drinks probably pushed things up but this was by far the most expensive meal we had on the... More

Thank you for your lovely feedback on our ambiance and extensive menu. Following your comment portion sizes will be double checked for consistency coming out of the kitchen, as most feedback we get say its just right or even too big, so perhaps there was a mishap that evening. If you do come back without the family, and we hope... More
