Food was really nice. Good mix of traditional and Asian fusion dishes at reasonable prices (~$20-25 per main). Some local beers on tap though a few of these had run out. Had a tv that showed sports.

We were dubious at first but once we tasted the food (ordered nasi goreng, pad see ew and green curry) we were pleasantly surprised. Great food, kudos to the chef.
