I ordered the chicken hokkien noodles dish. The dish itself was fine. I can understand that maybe some items are seasonal on the menu. But if a dish states items then they should be executed as the same. The dish only stated Asian greens. Which the meal had a abundance of carrot and cauliflower in it and had the greens of snow peas, one bok Choy root and garnished with spring onions and coriander (which I asked for no coriander). Also there were no sesame seeds with the meal. Glasses that were on the table were dirty (lipstick stains) and swapped for more dirty glasses. Other then the glasses the restaurant looked clean. The staff were friendly. The meals came out very quickly which was great. All in all was a good place to go for dinner.

The service, food and drinks was fantastic. Your Strawberry Smash Mocktails are simply delicious. All of our group enjoyed their meals .. only problem was they mixed up the Chicken Burgers .. one without bacon and one without tomato. Luckily we spotted it before food was bitten into.

When we arrived they immediately assist us in our reserve table. The crew are accommodating and attentive, service is fast and food is nice. Although they serve me the wrong food, instead of prawn chorizo linguine they gave me prawn chorizo risotto but in 3 mins they serve me the right food. The person who took my order was very apologetic. Overall highly recommended!

Great customer service every time. Have never been disappointed. Went last night for a birthday, staff bought out the cake and all sang "Happy Birthday to my daughter", it made her day. Highly recommend for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

It was OK. The food was good but not great. loved the starter share plate but then my main (chicken satay) was a little disappointing. My kids and husband enjoyed their meals sticking to pizza, calamari and pasta. The staff were very nice but seemed very busy taking over 15 min just for a glass of wine.

As they were very busy we had wait although once we were served entree soon followed. Friendly waiter offered to move us away from a big family group. Food was not as good as usual, fish of the day wa so recooked and chapmpotatoes underdone but the butter chicken was up to the usual standard.
