Centrally located in heart of town but little of appeal. A large food hall with lots of Asian style restaurants. Struggled to find the toilets, signs not too good.

This plaza has lots of restaurants. They have a large court to eat there as well. Very attractive! There are a few other shops as well, like Tax preparations, travelling and so on. Worthwhile when we are hungry!

There is a nice variety of cheap, high quality Asian restaurants here. You could go to many restaurants in Cairns and spend $40 on a pretentious fusion dish on a square plate, or you could come here and spend $15 on an authentic meal. It's...More

If you're an Asian and would like to taste your own countries' food, then you should come here. You may find Korean food, Japanese food, Vietnamese food as well as Chinese food. Good to pick one for both lunch and dinner.

Small plaza with a souvenir shop runned by a Korean and asian food outlets and food court. The bubble tea shop is good and taste just like what we have back home, with flavors that are unique to the shop of course.

Very reminiscent of some of the shopping malls in Sydney's Chinatown. Small retail shops targeting mainly the Asian community with a number of dine in and take out Asian food outlets. Worth a quick look for the food outlets.

Over the last few years the Chinese shops have gradually replaced all other shops. Now the place has become just an Asian food court of hot food on a heater all day. Go to Rustys Market or Cairns Central instead.

If you're Australian there's no point going. All tourist and just for the Asians. Kind of disappointing for me. Looks like there's a few good Asian cuisines.
