We had a decent meal for two here on a busy Saturday night in Chinatown - two tasty curries (my partner enjoyed his slightly kitsch crocodile curry) and sides. The food was nice but nothing special, and the setting is pretty basic. One big plus for me was a well-marked gluten-free menu, as Asian eateries can be a minefield.

Thought we'd give this place a go while taking a walk through the Melbourne streets.
Place was pretty basic. Staff were not very attentive. Food was bland and just thrown on the plate. Drinks were ridiculously over priced.
Filling enough but felt like we could have done a LOT better for the price we paid.
Overall very disappointed. Would NOT recommend at all. I am sure there are far better places to eat in China Town.

Loved the Thai green Kangeroo curry and the Tofu and veg red curry, the satay roti was yum too.
We felt that this was a reasonably priced bistro compared to some other restaurants we vistited in melbourne and on both occasions that we dined here, we left feeling very satisfied.
The decor could do with some modernisation but it was clean and tidy and this is our main concern when eating out.

For the price, the serves we're incredibly small-especially the entrees. The peanut sauce that went with the tiny roti was bland and lacking any Thai zing. The mains were okay but nothing special. So many better restaurants in the CBD.

We walked in at 10 pm just grateful to be there! The food was lovely, the staff very pleasant and we really enjoyed the experience. We love hot spicy food and that is exactly what we got. We would not hesitate to return.
