It’s a place that’s so good that you almost don’t wanna give it a good review so it doesn’t become too popular and you can’t get a table. Forget what you know, this place is awesome!

We are semi regular visitors and find the food very tasty. This is a small restaurant with a very small kitchen and appears to do a lot of takeaway business.

Had been there about 18 months ago and it had been fine. Tonight, however, it was very disappointing. The food was overcooked, the peanut sauce was watery, generally very disappointing.

Having been coming to this restaurant for several years, even when it was the Street Hawker, the food portions to price ratio has been very good. Even the food quality and service have both been high. Over the last years, I have noticed that the...More
