Went to the Vistana after recommendation from friends. Was not disappointed. The chefs specials on Malay food were outstanding and large portions. The curry puffs were exceptional as an entree and the duck dishes were exquisite.The duck was full of flavour and melted in the mouth.

Love this place! Not the fanciest of restaurants, but it is clean and the décor is nice. The food is amazing and the staff friendly. Been there three times now, and even though we are from Sydney, anytime we are within 1 hour of the restaurant we have to go there.

We were staying in a local hotel and after our long journey we decided on take out. The Vistana was very busy with a casual dining atmosphere. Our take out was ready in no time at all. There was a lot of good quality exceptional food. Highly recommend.

Char Koey Teow chosen and I'm very happy with my $13 dinner. Feeling sick and not wanting to cook. Not wanting to eat 'junk food' either. My appetite was challenged and I wanted something yummy, healthy and fresh. Vistana made me feel better with a great meal. I also like how me and my dogs can sit outside whilst I... More

Excellent food and quick service after a busy day at work. BYO wine and beer helps the budget. Food is tasty and you can watch it being prepared!

The reviews lived up to the hype. Great food hall atmosphere eating. Order and pay at counter take seat and get ready to eat. No frills but absolutely delicious seafood Laska. The ingredients were fresh the squid was especially tasty. The mussels were not spot on but very close. I will be back to try more.

Nice portion and was yummy. Personally, a bit too chilli (not someone who can take chilli well), but that's just personal taste. Accomodating to dietary needs.

Have just been back for our 5th meal at this great local restaurant. The meals are generous, the food is fresh and we love it. Cafe style dining with really friendly staff. Haven't been disappointed yet and the only problem is what to have next visit. Definitely going to be a regular.

Local Malaysian restaurant located on the highway at Charlestown. We had rendang lamb curry and chilli basil chicken. Both were really nice. Fast and friendly service un a super casual atmosphere. Prices are excellent. It's only 10mins from home so my only disappointment was not having eaten here sooner. Chicken laksa is on the cards next time. Hot tip: have... More

Ordered the last 2 nights while staying in Charlestown. Polite staff, great food and immaculately clean (I had takeaway on both occasions). Please to see a cook up on the stove cleaning the stainless steel exhaust hoods within an inch of their life as well as the tile wall. Impressive. Food is great, they corrected an error in order with... More
