“Excellent food”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

The restaurant is on the high street but is hidden away above one of the shops.The restaurant is is lovely with an authentic oriental feel.

We visited this restaurant with our teenage daughter, on our visit it was very quiet - but it was a Wednesday night.
The service was excellent as was the food, it was very well presented and tasted fantastic, we all had different meals and all agreed it was among the best we have experienced. Very reasonably priced too.

Thoroughly recommend you give it a try.

“The best oriental food outside of London”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

Believe me, when I say that this place is a true gem and deserves better than an excellent rating !.
I have tasted food in lots of so called " good restaurants " in every part of the world, and there are the good, the bad, and the downright terrible. We were visiting the town for a few days and after experiencing a very bad meal in a local, (so called) Indian, this place was recommended to us by one of the locals. The place is above a nice bar named archers who do some great real ales which we sampled before going upstairs. From the first dish, to the last the food could not be faulted, and knocked spots off the other oriental in the town, where the food was bland to say the least. The owner (think his name is Ben?), runs around making sure every customer is happy, and boy were we happy with the food. The only let down were the staff who were too young to care, (except the pretty girl with the dreadlocks) and let Ben do all the running around. my tip would be, get yourself a responsible, older member of staff Ben, and take the pressure of yourself so that you can enjoy what youre doing. CANT WAIT TO GO BACK THE NEXT TIME IN TOWN, WELL DONE !!. I find it strange that the Seri Intan has not been reviewed on here before, Prestatyn, you dont know what youve got in this gem of a place!.

“Good food great waiter”
Reviewed 21 August 2012 via mobile

On the recommendation of our b&b host we tried this restaurant and were very happy with our meals. I am vegetarian and although here wasn't a huge choice the vegetables in sate sauce which was offered as an entree was very tasty. They added tofu to make It more main sized. It included asparagus and snow peas broccoli cauliflowers carrots and potatoes.
My husband enjoyed the pork dish in a clay pot which was still bubbling hot when it reached the table.
The waiter was attentive and friendly and even taught us how to fold napkins into shapes.
