I've been here a few times before and had really nice meals, but tonight I only ordered one - Char Kwee Tow. Which should've been a lot better. A little tasteless and oily. Rated average!

Went to the Vistana after recommendation from friends. Was not disappointed. The chefs specials on Malay food were outstanding and large portions. The curry puffs were exceptional as an entree and the duck dishes were exquisite.The duck was full of flavour and melted in the mouth.

Love this place! Not the fanciest of restaurants, but it is clean and the décor is nice. The food is amazing and the staff friendly. Been there three times now, and even though we are from Sydney, anytime we are within 1 hour of the restaurant we have to go there.

We were staying in a local hotel and after our long journey we decided on take out. The Vistana was very busy with a casual dining atmosphere. Our take out was ready in no time at all. There was a lot of good quality exceptional food. Highly recommend.

My appetite was challenged and I wanted something yummy, healthy and fresh. Vistana made me feel better with a great meal. I also like how me and my dogs can sit outside whilst I... More
