This place is good for thai laksa. It's a hidden secret. They do excellent laksa. Recommend it if that's your thing.

Combination laksa is delicious! It gets very busy at lunch after 12.30 or so. Takeaways popular. Coffee is pretty good too.

Quick service for a little light lunch that was fresh and tasty. Modern decor, cafe style, might be noisy when busy as tables are fairly close together. Friendly efficient staff.

A little squeezy but worth the short wait for a table. Some of the best authentic Malaysian food in Darwin. One of my must visit restuarant when visiting Darwin.

Tasty laksa for lunch. A return for dinner was disappointing. Rendang was a bland stew. Dishes did not have authentic spices or presentation. Would only go back for laksa.
