Because we didn't make a reservation, we had to wait 30, 45 minutes until we could get our table. Was it worth the wait? meh... The food wasn't bad, but not exeptional either. The portions was so big, that I didn't have to search for lunch the next day.

Next time we come here (And there will definitely be a next time) we'll remember to order one dish between two people. We were warned the mains were large portions. From the Sung Choi Bow to the Banana Fritters everything was delicious. The Sung Choi Bow is two portions which seems to be the norm of sizing for all the... More

Very very busy restaurant which we thought was a good sign. We waited 30 minutes for a table and when eventually we were seated the table was sticky. We ordered one starter and two mains with a beer and a cocktail. The drinks were great, the starter was fantastic (spinach pakora) but absolutely massive. Thank goodness we only ordered one!...

Have been visiting this wonderful eatery when we holiday in Byron for a few years now and the food is always fantastic, they cater really well for gluten free and understand cross contamination issues for allergies. We had the BanfBang Chicken and Bangalow Pork Belly last night and both were amazing, fresh and full of flavour. The staff are knowledgable... More

The food as usual was tasty and full of luscious ingredients. The chicken bangbang was amazing as was the combination fried rice with extra meat. Frankly speaking it was the best value I have ever experienced in a restaurant. I did not expect such good value in Byron Bay where the opposite is often the case. The service was quite... More

Yum Char menu Thursday to Sunday is a must for lunch - as a local I find it hard to resist chef Tipi Heng's version of Yum Char - beautifully made dumplings and a great list of chefs yum char specialties like snapper with mango chutney and honey chicken - and the coldest Tiger beer in town to set the...

The position, atmosphere and service with this restaurant are all excellent. Staff are friendly and efficient. Food portions are large and it's difficult for one person to eat a main meal alone. However the food was disappointingly bland. It isn't authentic Asian food.

We use to frequent this restaurant every time we visited Byron Bay and we have eben left a 5 star review in the past, but sadly after this experience we won't be coming back here. We waited over 2 hours for our meals, the wait staff were lovely and cheerful and kept telling us our meals were on the way... More

Visited last year when we visited Byron Bay and the experience was great so we visited again this year. Again the food was tasty and with big servings. A good selection for all dietary requirements and the staff were helpful and friendly. I had pork belly one night and it was nice we visited the next night and I had... More
