Overall it's an okay restaurant but a few cons to point out is that It's a bit pricey for the portion sizes that you get. I ordered myself a honey-glazed chicken with rice meal and it was just disrespectful to me as a hungry guy:D...Also, our starters came out after some of our meals and my meal came out so late that the first person was almost finished with theirs. The chicken was overcooked and a bit dry but overall the food was quite tasty. (Had to finish 2 other peoples meals to be full)More

AMAZING flavourful meals. We tried 5 seperate dishes to share family-style and all were delicious!!! Very good price for the quality of food. Most menu items are GF and DF which is fantastic. I liked how they asked if anybody had any allergies they needed...to consider when I ordered. Will definitely return!More

We really enjoyed our meal here yesterday evening. There were a large variety of tastes in the four dishes we chose, and the ingredients were so fresh and appealing. Service was pleasant and the meal was extremely good value. Definitely to be recommended.

The food is yummy and very fast service, ie, food is on your table normally within 10 minutes of ordering. We have been there a dozen times and have not been dissatisfied ever.

I have given this 3 stars because of the long 45-minute wait for my takeaway. I know they are popular & busy but how difficult it is to scoop up some rice & curry ( presumably already made ). No apologies either when I finally...got my order. Maybe a small freebie could help. Maybe this will make owners take notice & improve.More

Clean and fresh, is how I would describe this restaurant. Industrial seating with a few tables.Not a place to stay and soak up the ambiance. However the staff were friendly and quick to deliver. A tantalising menu which is reasonably priced with varied dishes and...delicious generous portions. Pork and prawn summer rolls were generous but lacking in flavour. Coconut duck curry was a mouth full of joy with the taste of lemongrass lingering long after. For a health buzz try the fresh juices. Very refreshing menu and dining experienceMore

Banh mi was fine, but extremely slow service. I was the only person in store with 3 staff prepping garnishes rather than making my order. 10 minutes later my baguette was filled. If you're after a quick sandwich - go to subway.

Got takeaways here tonight with my partner who had the Pho Noodle Soup and I had what was suppose to be a lemongrass beef salad. The lemongrass salad was a handful of coleslaw that could have come from a bag in the supermarket and had...absolutely no lemongrass in it whatsoever, extremely over cooked beef that was just sat on top, and to top it off little to no dressing. My partners pho came with the broth seperate which was to be added on top. Once at the bottom of the meal he found a stack of noodles still all stuck together as if just flipped out of a 2minute noodle packet. I actually added the remainder of his broth to my salad to give it some flavour. We decided to eat here based on positive reviews however, I would not recommend either of these dishes. To finish on a positive, the broth was great and the spring rolls were lovely.More
