The meals were satisfactory, but the quality of the experience was reduced due to the careless service and lackadaisical staff. We drank water from a vodka bottle and maybe I should have had vodka instead!

It's a good sign that Kotaraya was busy on a cold winter Monday night but we managed a table despite not having a booking. Really great food, friendly and informative staff and a wide range of offerings. Wine (good wine) at a reasonable price also....More

Dropped for an early dinner. Service was prompt and the menu looked promising from which we chose the spicy calamari, nasi goreng and coconut rice. What went missing then was the quality edge. The calacamari were tasty, but not especially crisp and the oil they...More

We went here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised, the food was fresh and delicious and the Banana fritters out of this world YUM. The waitress was very friendly and attentive and when my husband made a mistake and went to over pay she quickly...More

Large servings of tasty Asian food especially the great value lunch specials. Freshly cooked to order food delivered quickly by friendly staff and no problem in varying the heat for a member of our party who doesn't do 'spicy'. Street side seating is great for...More
