Best vegetarian food in the South East, the Laksa is worth it! And the roti with spicy sauce - phenomenal! Very happy to eat here

Very tasty food in a low key environment. This place is nothing short of a vegetarian's dream. The curry puffs are the best I've ever had.

Delicious cruelty free food and always great service. Must try the beef and black bean and the fried rice. Can't fault anything that we've tried.
