Excellent food. Can’t say enough how each dish was just perfect. Service was also excellent. I ate in and had takeaway. Both excellent. No grease - recommend the Barra stir fry but the curries and entries were so very tasty.

The very best Laksa in Darwin absolutely if you like Asian curries you should give this small intimate resturaurant a try. Very central and service good. Prices also reasonable.
