We have been there a couple of times now. All of the dishes have been very good. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options. The shrimp curry and special noodle soup with prawns are both ones we will go back for.

Loved their fried rice. Service was prompt and not hurried. Price range was reasonable, although on the higher side. My boyfriend and I loved their food.
