This place is usually packed, the services is always great and the food, well yes, let’s talk about the amazing food. There are more than 150 dishes on offer – quite impressive. You can select from soups, entrees, make-your-own rice paper wraps, pork, noodle plates, vegetarian, egg, chicken, beef, seafood and rice dishes, a few picks from neighbouring countries and a few chef suggestions. To reduce prolonged reading, it’s wise to come with a purpose or, alternatively, whim it and just pick a number (no matter what you end up with, it’s bound to be good).
The meals here are fresh and flavoursome – you can taste the market quality vegies but most of all the creations are authentic and the service is tops. A good way to begin is with a bowl of won ton soup. Its plump meaty parcels make this into a bowl of Asian magic. The tofu used in the lemongrass salad has fantastic texture, and the flavours are balanced with just enough zest to make them irresistible. A light “summer noodle” main, which comes tousled with a decent serve of diced spring rolls, dances in your mouth, while other standouts include the “bird’s nest seafood” – a theatrical mix of fresh seafood – and a bold Malaysian satay beef with steamed white rice. There’s a reason this place is chockers all week!
