This restaurant is hidden from general view in the Market Place in Bungay. It's a very quirky building and very cosy. The food was very very good and very reasonably priced. The lady chef produces some very tasty meals, we had a starter and main course each and they all tasted very freshly prepared, this place is well worth a... More

I came here after stopping in the area for work, and I wasn't disappointed. The food has an Asian flair although there are some English dishes. The Teriyaki was amazing and just the right portion size. The atmosphere of the restaurant was also lovely. The service is friendly and welcoming. The table next to me had several of the other...

It was naturally fairly quiet at lunchtime. Found the building quant but the food superb and friendly staff. The 4 of us had the Cambodian menu though they do cater for other pallets. Would like a larger menu choice but not a problem. Food was hot, well served and delicious, coupled with a reasonable price. Would certainly go again.

We are glad you all enjoyed your lunch. Thank you for your review. As we like to cook with fresh and seasonal ingredients as much as possible we tend to have a smaller menu choice than chain restaurants. We are glad you are thinking of coming again. Don't forget we are open in he evenings, and serve takeaways as well. More

Thank you very much for your 5 star review Our menu is varied regularly so sometimes there are more Oriental dishes on the menu. This does depend upon the availability of ingredients as we like to make our dishes from fresh produce as much as possible. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you will come again the...

Weekday evening - pretty full, but no need to book. Cheerful, mixed-age diners. Colourful design / decoration of interior. No long waits for our food, which was delicious.

Last minute decision early Sunday evening and what a good one. Had the Sunday roast which was really good and bit too much for me (not usually the case) ! Managed to squeeze in a tasty and again very ample plum crumble. Well cooked, friendly service and reasonable price!
