Came into this restaurant for a light dinner on my first night in the city. It is a small restaurant which is OK, I had the satay chicken and seafood fried rice which was tasty and filling. The satay had a great spicy sauce, not too hot but a bit of a kick. The rice was a bit bland so had to add some soy. Overall an OK eat costing about £10 plus beer

Place is a bit claustrophobic, maybe the air is not ok, the food is average, and the fresh spring rolls do not seem like a great idea, since not perfectly fresh. Dishes are ok, but lack of taste, service is very average, since the waiters are not trained properly.

Off the main drag it was fairly busy for a Monday night. A large selection of meat dishes including the pork ribs cooked in a variety of ways which our group chose. All were nice tasting. The spring roll appetisers were good. Portions are not large and the prices can add up to $20-30 pp if you are are doing appetisers to deserts with a none wine drink. Good standard of food, worth visit.

Hidden on a side street, this restaurant has a good selection of dishes. Staff were very attentive and the desserts were very tasty. Great value and a nice atmosphere.

We went to this restaurant back in 1996 when we lived here. Their stand-out dish was lemongrass soup/broth. We visited again this time and I ordered the lemongrass soup and it was every bit as good as before albeit the portion was much smaller. It's worth going to this restaurant for this dish alone.
