Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Sorry you were disappointed. Unfortunately people have different expectations when it comes to levels of spice and it is hard to cater for all tastes

We really enjoyed our visit here. The restaurant is far enough away from the cbd to have no parking worries. The service was excellent and the meals moderately price. Not crowded but a good atmosphere inside. The spring rolls were average and the curry puffs...much better. Can recommend the fish dishes and the crispy pork excellent. Tom yum soup was outstanding. The food was fresh and tasty and we will be back.More
