However it was nice enough for us to want to return which we did and... More

We were walking by and the menu looked pretty good so we decided to give it a try. The yellow curry was very good as was the stir fry dish. The chicken satay was average - not a fan.

It is a quick meal, boardering on fast food due to the speed of service, though the quality of food is not indicitive of this. You are able to enjoy your... More

I hadn't been there for 2 years & the food used to be very good. I got takeaway & it was not good at all . The coconut prawns were burnt & horrible with a very thick crumb and red beef curry was watery & nasty. The pad Thai was ok. I was very disappointed as the food used to... More
