Unlike their other restaurant opposite the indoor markets, this branch offers superb food along with superb customer service. The staff here are so friendly and welcoming. On one occasion I messed up on an order and they happily changed it with no extra charges, the complete opposite of their other restaurant. The location is also excellent. Right in the heart...

Service was poor, the staff are more interested in chatting to each other than looking after their customers. The food has gone from excellent to ghastly....no taste and poorly cooked. The sad thing is that the staff don't care. This is my last visit will never return.

I have been here many times, with my husband and with groups of friends. All the food is delicious with a lot of variety. I really like the satay lamb and the fake meat dishes are great - the vegetarian 'lamb' is just as tasty as the real thing. The portions are enormous and the prices cheap and they have... More

The food here is amazing and it's really great value, which is why I've been a few times. Each time I've tried something new and always been impressed so don't want to influence choices other than saying to make sure you have the bubble tea! Would be 5 star but I'd prefer if it had more of a restaurant feel... More

I really like this place: good service, reasonably priced, tasty food and a good atmosphere! I was very chuffed to see that there was 4 pages of vegetarian options! I opted for the spicy Singapore noodles with tofu and they didn't disappoint. My only criticism would be that they were a bit dry and I didn't like the decorative cucumber... More

Unbelievable meal served with a warm and friendly service. I am most definitely visiting here again and would recommend it to anyone who fancies an oriental cuisine trip.

Well I can't say too much about this restaurant other than the food is great, the prices are very reasonable, service good, and it is without a doubt worth a visit. The very large bowls of soup and noodles are a must, along with the squid and fried rice. I could go on and on, but you really need to... More
