Sat at the grill table and had a great time with the owner Leo and his great staff. Stared with sushi and then stuffed ourselves with the main courses. Best egg fried rice I have ever had! Bring your friends and an empty stomach.

The atmosphere, service and food excellent. Thursday night and the place was buzzing. Although the restaurant was so busy the service and food was excellent. We will definitely be back.

I have eaten prawn fried rice all over the world including Thailand. Chef Bheki at Bite Your Tongue consistently makes the best prawn fried rice we have ever had.

We went to "bite your tongue" for Sweet and sour pork, to to take away for our office staff. We ordered 4 portions, 2 with rice, 2 with noodles. All four portions were bland, had no flavour. We won't go back in a hurry.
