Love this restaurant. Great food menus with a good choice for all. Food very tasty I had the scallops. A bit pricey but cooked to perfection.
My fellow diners were also impressed with one not wanting it so spicy cooked to her liking.
Nice atmosphere with friendly helpful staff
Will be back.

Thank Martina N

This is a restaurant that has been in the neighbourhood for years and somewhere I have gone to regularly but sadly the menu options, food quality and staff attentiveness has deteriorated over time.
The restaurant was about a third full when we arrived just after 6pm. We were seated right away and ordered water to start while we looked at the menu. We had to ask again for the water about 25 minutes later as no one had come back to take our drink order. We had the same experience with the drinks order not showing up. The food took forever to arrive and was underwhelming and in the case of the chilli prawns over sauced.
There were a sufficient number of staff working so not sure what the problem was but it got worse as the restaurant became busier.
The people at the neighbouring table had the same experience with the lack of attention.
Just a note, there are very few gluten free menu options. While reasonably priced, the experience just isn’t worth it anymore as this hadn’t been a one off.

I had Nasi goreng campur. And it was amazing!! Literally I got everything on one plate and was so goooood!! Also they have monthly special deal now! Singapore laksa is only $7.95 which is really reasonable price. And I got a $5 coupon by leaving a comment!

We were excited to go here but our very first dish was fried calamari. Mixed in was a metal and plastic bottle cap that had accidentally been fried with the food. We complained and they immediately replaced the dish of calamari with another one fried with the same oil. When we pointed out they should first change the cooking oil to avoid further contamination they agreed and said there would be a 30 minute delay while the new oil heated up which is understandable. But I do not believe they did this as they continued to provide calamari to other guests while we waited for the oil to heat up. Other than that the food was good and service acceptable

We had an excellent Singapore Laksa with shrimp, egg noodles, tofu, chicken and fish in a curry coconut broth and a Kung pow chicken with calamari. Both very tasty. The Panang dessert with frozen coconut milk and green parang layer was special. Service was friendly, warm and not rushed.
