Along with many Asians I found this a very intriguing and tasteful experience.so many options ! As a Kiwi I wanted to sample something in a busy environment thus I settled Japanese Teriyaki and Chicken meals that were enjoyed with Miso soup. I will return.

I regularly visit the Vietnamese fusion place in food alley. Everyone is so friendly and the food is fantastic. Try the 13B which is the lemongrass chicken. Their food is made with love and passion and it really comes across in the flavours.
