Despite the restaurant being full, the service was still great. This restaurant offers a great menu and is sure to satisfy the most fastidious of taste buds. The clean and warm ambient creates a relaxing setting. We were so impressed, we already made another booking with a larger group. A must visit restaurant.

All the food is great but tonight we had an entree platter and were so full we had to go straight to the fantastic roti banana caramel pancake. I couldn't fit in my favourite char keow teow. Thanks to Margie and Sean for a great night.

We are locals, have been impressed with how busy the restaurant is whenever we go past, but last Saturday evening was the first time we have eaten there. Luckily we had booked as it was almost full. The greeting was friendly and the service spontaneous and efficient, a tasting of our selected wine was offered. Our selections from the menu... More

The satay tasted just as I remember it from stays in Singapore and Malaysia. The noodles (Hokkien mee and Singapore bee noon), not as authentic but still very good.

We came for take away and were helped to pick the best things on the menu that would suit us, were shown to the bar to wait where we had had some great wine and the food was ready very fast for us to take. Once home we were very happy with the quality and amount of food

Hi, Thank you for your wonderful words about our take away. We try to keep the standard of the take away and home delivery food as it would be while dining in. It's very important the food keeps it's flavour once at home. I am so glad we chose well for you and look forward to seeing again sometime. Jack More
