It is some time since my last vsit here, and I was certainly not disappointed with it. We had booked for a table of 2 for lunch at 101 Victoria Street, and it was very busy on our mid-week visit. I ordered the "Special Chefs Menu" of Pancake with crispy greens, sea food, mint and other asian treats like bean... More

We arrived here late and were served rice fools that were so fresh they were still hot! Pho (Vietnamese beef soup) delicious and very generous serving. Fried chicken with ginger and spring onion sauce very tasty. So good we came back the following day and can highly recommend the fried chicken cakes and salt and pepper fried prawns. Ask for...

Fairly busy with a lot of people crowded into a fairly small place which made it pretty noisy and at times hard to enjoy a conversation. The service was pretty quick and the Thai red curry didn't take too long at all to appear. The food was reasonably good although nothing too special although when considering the cost it was...

Went here once for a work dinner and was very impressed with the chicken roti canai I had. This is my usual 'go to' meal when out at an Asian restaurant and Asian kitchen delivered. Quick, hot and delicious. Highly recommend. Not a bad price either, however they did forget my order on dumplings. They apologised, but i didn't really... More

Have been going to this cheap eatery for lunch for over 15 years - but this time found that their curry laksa not up to their previously high standard.

The menu is extensive but the dishes were not to the level of what the names imply.Besides the dishes are popular and known ones from different countries so we have already tried them elsewhere.For what we paid, we can have value for our money in another place. If you're serving a dish from a certain place make it as close... More

This is a pop-in place. It's pretty basic so it has almost a temporary feel about it. The staff, who are always busy, had to the ease of dining here. And the chef works wonders in a tiny kitchen. Here the Banh Xeo - simply called 'pancake' - is my favourite. The rice pancake is the crispiest I've come across... More

We loved this place so much, we dined here two nights in a row. On the second night, they were busy but rearranged their tables to accommodate us. Service was friendly and efficient. Food came out quickly, was delicious, and excellent value too. What more could you ask for?
