“Horrible!!”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

We came here after purchasing a Scoopon voucher where we had unlimited appetizers. In saying unlimited, we only went back for seconds and had a bit of food left over.
At the conclusion of our meal, one of the waitresses who seemed very nice throughout the meal suddenly turned on us, advising us in a quite aggressive and rude tone that we need to pay for any food that was left on the table. This was not anywhere in the fine print of the voucher!
When we questioned her about this she started to raise her voice, advising that they always told their customers that they should only order as they went, and that they would need to pay for left overs at the end. We were never told this. She also was against us taking any of the food home.
We eventually gave in and paid the extra amount of money, only to be further abused on our way out, with her saying that we were wasteful and that we should be more considerate due to children starving in other countries.
All up that restaurant got a total of $140 from us. All we ended up eating was 1 and a half serves of the entrees each! totally over priced!
I would NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone!

“Scoopon Fry Up”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

We purchased a scoopon deal where we could have unlimited entrees and a choice of unlimited red or white wine for $19. Except for the Chicken Tom Yum all the entree meals were fried. Even the chicken satay which is much nicer bbqed was fried. Most of the fried food was overcooked and the spring rolls were quite soggy. Not sure if it was because it was not fresh or the oil was just not hot enough.

I cant comment on the mains as we didnt try any.

I also had the experience with one of the waitresses who spoke limited english. One of our orders took a while to arrive and another waitress came over and apologised as it seems there was some mis-communication with the other waitress and our order. The place is more of a cafe than a restaurant and lacks a little in ambiance.

“Tasty food but inconsistent service”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

We lived across the road and use their take out service twice. The first time we only received about half what we ordered. The second time it was ok

The food is tasty and is prepared on the spot.

They added a room end of last year where you can sit.

“A weird experience”
Reviewed 26 June 2011

Saw this restaurant online, it was close to where we were going so we thought we'd grab a quick bite. Let me say that the food was great. The service on the other hand was shocking. The Asian waitress, could not speak a word of English, we knew that when we ordered, things would come out wrong. Our Entree's came out nice, however the chef 'decided' to put two of the serves, on the same plate. Would have been ok if we were sharing, however as they we ordered separately, two of the entrees on the same plate for people not sitting next to each other was not a good idea. Also, the waitress was picking her nose as she walked passed her. When we asked her to fix the entree 'situation' she walked back into the kitchen and yelled out OH MY GOD, and then something in Thai. Also, our friend did not receive his dish, we asked where it was and she proceeded to apologise and tell us that they had run out of chicken. She told him that they had to go and get more chicken, however 2 minutes later his meal arrived.
As I said, the food was very nice, however the whole experience was a little weird, the 8 of us agreed so we would not recommend this place to anyone. Maybe better for takeaway, but would be a gamble to see if you got the right meal.
