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.

Good menu = friendly staff - a nice evening and we will go back. A very good change to the typical food served up at the bars and resorts.

My expectations were low even before arriving at the restaurant (not expecting to find good Asian food on a little island) - however, the experience still managed to disappoint me. The restaurant itself was ok. Nice decor and had some great 90s music playing. Staff were ok as well, they were doing their jobs - nothing to rave about service wise. However, the food was pretty bad. The sweet and sour pork was too doughy, didn't have enough sauce, and generally just under seasoned. The pad thai was soggy, lacking any texture. Probably over cooked. The ginger fish however was passable - the flavors were good (not great) but the fish was too tough, once again, seemed to be overcooked. Would I go back? Probably not...

Had the vegetarian curry and hubby had the beef rendang. Nice meal that came out quickly, particularly the veg curry. I'd come again just for this.

Had the 'special' which was lamb korma. It was lamb loin ON THE BONE in a 'korma' sauce served up in a soup bowl. The lamb was covered in sauce, makng it nearly impossible to see to separate the bone from the meat. When I picked up the bone to try to pull meat off it I could see that the loins hadn't been trimmed at all of fat. It was impossible to eat this meal without consuming heaps of fat. I've never had an Indian dish served up on the bone with the fat still attached. It was incredibly greasy korma as well - I guess because they cooked the fatty loins in it? They cheerfully took it off the bill and offered me something else, but of course, this was 20 minutes after it was delivered so it was too late. The place was packed, and I noticed locals eating there so it must be popular for some reason. I also know someone who ate there recently and really liked it. So maybe it was just this one dish? But it was so incredibly bad that I can't imagine that whoever is in charge of the kitchen has ever had to eat this dish.

The staff here are very friendly and attentive. We had no booking but they were able to get us a table within 10 minutes. Good was good quality with fresh ingredients, and served quickly. It was also very well priced. Great for casual dining.

We thought we’d try this restaurant as we enjoy Asian food. The menu selection was good with not too many choices to overwhelm. My wife enjoyed the in-house cats that visited the table and the dog that just watched. The food was delicious and the service was prompt and friendly

Sadly only discovered this little gem the night before we flew back to NZ. A quaint little place on the main road in Muri Beach serving authentic Thai food. So good was the Nasi Goring that we returned again tonight before catching our flight. The service was pleasant and personable and the food amazing. Certainly worth a visit if staying in Muri.

Went on a public holiday and very glad we booked ad saw people turned away. Menu is expensive, but all 5 of us had different things and everyone’s looked and tasted amazing. Cracking little place and highly recommend (but make sure you book)

Dined here on a busy night and they were all just absolutely lovely and the food completely blew me away. I had the pork wontons to start with and then the sweet and sour pork as a main and I have literally never been more satisfied by such simple dishes before in my life. The batter on the sweet and sour was crispy, perfectly seasoned and the right thickness. Every piece was a delight. While we were there a second group came in and ordered a selection of entrees and after eating their wontons then ordered another five servings to take home with them and I fully support this action, you will definitely want to have them again for every meal! The cocktails were also delicious and a great extra touch was having insect repellant and hand sanitiser on the front tables for all to use. One thing that was a little, I guess unexpected, for us given the usual service at an Asian food place is that the dishes took a longer time to come out. I would suggest anyone dining here just be prepared for a nice relaxing evening on island time

Family of 9, three generations, all happy with fresh, flavoursome meals. Big portions, generous slabs of fish. The ginger fish was especially yum.

Made a reservation for 3 people, to be sure to get a seat. Located next to La Casita in Muri and in a similar but asian style decor, the place was busy with tourist families and loud kids, but never mind. Had 3 different entrees and mains, all a bit bland without the usual asian flair but there was a choice of sauces to pimp up a meal and thats what I did. Soup of the day for entree was great, tender pieces of beef, nice broth with egg noodles and lots of different vegetables. Some extra chili sauce gave it the kick it needed and also some coriander was added. Main was a "Pad Thai", Filipino style, so totally different to the original which I always order when in a new place. Thick spaghetti like egg noodles, a sweet, sour hot sauce with crunchy prawns. Unfortunately not even a good dash of 2 different chili sauces seemed to give this dish some character, but it is asian fusion cooking in the end. There were plenty of choices on the menu and my 2 friends were very happy with their meals, Nasi Goreng and Sweet n Sour Pork. Like to go back for another choice if I have the time. Average prices and very friendly staff.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The menu was great and there were a lot of fish dishes, which we hadn’t found elsewhere. The service was excellent, decor very charming and prices good. A really nice local restaurant.
