I always come to the long bar for lunch when I am visiting Wellington. I first discovered it 11 years ago and I always get laksa and sides of spring rolls and roti and peanut sauce.

Met up with a group of four friends for lunch. Starters came out very quickly but then we waited for a long time for our mains. Otherwise a great catch up with good company and good food.

A long time favourite where I know what I am getting with consistently good food, tasty, fresh and well priced. Basic service and a small wine list this place does everything it is supposed to do without the frills. Love it

Came for lunch with a bunch of work colleagues. Has a crazy busy noisy atmosphere so not good for a quiet chat. The food is authentic and yummy tho!

Stopped by this restaurant for a quick lunch. The restaurant was bustling and we initially struggled to find a table. Fortunately table turnover was quick. Due to the large number of people we thought the food would be great but unfortunately our meals (which did arrive quickly) were bland and lacked the 'zing' one associates with south east Asian cuisine....

Just flew in from the USA and looking for early supper. Friendly server brought fried dumplings, chicken mee-goreng, with rice rather than noodles, and a glass of wine. Hit the spot.
