I was not feeling the best and we just wanted a bowl of soup so headed to the Rickshaw late one afternoon. We got there a little before they opened but they graciously let us sit inside and wait. The soup was delicious and the waitress was so thoughtful, she brought my ginger ale with ice on the side just... More

Having spent many months in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Singapore over the past three decades, we've eaten a lot of the dishes from the cuisines represented on the Rickshaw menu. Based on our experience, I'd say you may well be disappointed if you go expecting an authentic beef rendang or nasi goreng. That said, the restaurant's interpretation... More

Repeat return here, this time for a takeaway for four. Wonderful food, a little pricing for a take away but as there was nothing left to clear away you can say it was worth it. Will be back

Family of 4 dined here, loved the ambience and the menu is quite extensive. Meals were quite small to feed 4 and not a lot of meat in the dishes.I enjoyed the meal but the price really shocked me. A couple of drinks probably pushed things up but this was by far the most expensive meal we had on the... More

Thank you for your lovely feedback on our ambiance and extensive menu. Following your comment portion sizes will be double checked for consistency coming out of the kitchen, as most feedback we get say its just right or even too big, so perhaps there was a mishap that evening. If you do come back without the family, and we hope... More

The food is tasty and plentiful but the alcohol is expensive. Two rounds of drinks were more costly then the meals. The food is great and there is plenty of it but the cost of the drinks was disappointing.

Kia Orana Sharon, Appreciate the 5 star review including constructive feedback that your meals were tasty and plentiful as we strive for them to be. Sorry you found our alcohol prices steep, we believe they are average for restaurants on the island. We do have a happy hour with all drinks discounted from 5:30 to 6:30, so perhaps next time...
