We were one of the first people there and we didn't get our meal until about 40 mins later. It was pretty average food too. Do yourself a favour and if you feel like Asian food wait until you're off the island

We ate here as a family 2 out of 7 nights while staying in Muri beach area. The Pho is lovely, & the papaya salad absolutely fresh & delicious. Nice staff, nice outside/open air tables, & they were happy to pack up our leftover food so we could take back to our resort.

Choose this restaurant because of the ownership as it was one of three that were listed as owned by the same person. Having eaten at La Casita next door which was one of them thought it would be great and love Asian food after traveling extensively. Seated first and a table that had a dirty and wet cloth but later... More

In ten days we were three times at the Rickshaw, the ambient and the vietnamese style food, joint to a very reasonable price made every visit a "must do"

Dined here the first night at Ruri Beach and our only regret was not having a chance to get back there again. All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals which were really varied. Set in a lovely, quiet, tropical garden

I would go their again. It was a busy night with some pretty loud , drunk and obnoxious, racist Australians which was pretty disappointing as it did distract from the beautiful evening. As I said the food was great

Goodness me, so sorry some of the clientele disturbed your meal. I hope they will not be back, and that you will be. Our staff were probably a bit shy to tell them to be quiet, but will work on assertiveness in this situation. Glad that the things that we do control like food and service were great. More

a group of 10 visited this restaurant. the only down is that when we requested a table for 10 they were hesitant. but they did accommodate us. Great food, great atmosphere, would return.

So happy you found the food to be great. Reservations (call 22232) are recommended especially as we go into the busier season on island (March-Nov), and are usually essential for groups larger than six. We are a simple street cafe with only a few tables and a couple of chefs in the kitchen. So if other people have booked we... More

Its a nice place and the food was nice, the hot(spice) weren't hot, neither was the sauce on the table. Its cuisine is Asian, so it basically covers the whole of Asia food wise. I would go again, just wish they would focus on doing one style really well.

Kia Orana Kim W, Glad you like the place and especially that your food was nice. Sriracha Chilli sauce which we keep on the table isn't really hot but is very tasty and genuine. Next time you come request chopped fresh chilli, which we are happy to provide, as these are birdseye ones grown in our garden and are quite... More

Yummy dinner here. The Ginger fish is recommended. My son had the honey chicken but he shouldn't have. He enjoyed my dish a lot more. Go for plates you like and you won't be disappointed. Nice to have some well cooked Asian food in the Cooks. Great ambience too, in a garden like setting.
