After walking around for awhile we noticed this little gem down a side alley. We didn't have a booking on a busy Saturday night, but they fitted us in. We ordered entree and mains, both shared and everything was delicious. Staff friendly and courteous, would go back.

Our second visit and it did not disappoint. We ordered a mix of vegetarian and non veg. dishes. Everything was delicious and served piping hot...something we often do not get in the US. Friendly service, nice ambience to the restaurant.

At the end of a long day we were late for our booking, made a quick call, answered by the owner, no problem.
We shared 2 starters and a main. All the dishes were exquisite, quality ingredients, buzzing with flavours and freshness. Excellent!

This restaurant was a little hard to find as it was tucked away down a side street. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Lots of veggie options. we shared a veggie starter (cant remember the name but it was pretend chicken wrapped in spinach leaf with finely chopped capsicum, ginger, roasted peanut, red onion, lemon, roasted coconut topped with Blue Elephant plum sauce- you have to eat each parcel in one to experience all the yummy flavours ! plus Ginger & Tofu - very nice ! Hubby had snapper which was a little overcooked making it difficult to debone and skin - shame as sauce was nice. Ring and book in advance as is very busy.

Food was great quality. Lamb massaman was probably the best I've ever had. Only issue was service; they were clearly very busy with not enough staff. Starters came before drinks and took a long time to pay the bill at the end. I would come back again.
