Food nice, quick service, live music, friendly atmosphere, serves alcohol. Sat inside due to rain, it has an eclectic mix of items to look at while dining. No need to dress up, just turn up. Cash only.

We had lunch here after going to Monkey Island- we were starving and everything tasted so great! The Nyonya and Thai fish were fabulous. The roti pancake dessert was also lovely. Mostly western customers but we had a wonderful meal!

The Thai chicken is my absolute favourite. The veggies are so fresh and the flavour is so light and yummy! This place is always quite busy and open usually earlier than Helena’s.

I can also say very friendly. They can also cook something special if you just say what you want to omit. If you play the Guitar or can sing come on Friday for the jam session. If you still can't figure out what to eat... More
