“Yummy Asian food in Rarotonga”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

I was surprised to find an Asian food that serve vegetarian dishes. We ordered 3 dishes: pad thai, fried rice, and stir fried tofu. The taste was excellent. The only improvement I recommend is portion size. The portion of each dish is small for the price. I am not sure whether it was due to the lacking of vegetable and tofu. We were satisfied with taste but was not happy with the portion size.

“We kept going back!!!!...best Asian food in Rarotonga”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Great food!...the cooks are actually from Asia....so the curry we had was the best Indonesian beef curry I have had ....the service was friendly and very capable...a very happy place ...also a very modern spotless kitchen...newly built restaurant with spotless toilets also...lovely outdoor atmosphere....also indoor tables ...I loved the maintenance of the old colonial feeling of the indoor building ceilings and windows....our waitress remembered our drinks from the days earlier...we felt welcomed and the food was so good we returned again and again....

“A revelation”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This was a great find. Owned by Trader Jack this is a reasonably new Asian restaurant. Excellent staff, great food with the cleanest of environments we were tempted back several times. The waitress just set off the whole experience.
