Usually crowded because it is a much appreciated local restaurant. Food is excellent. Family run business, friendly and flexible.

Whats a visit to Canberra without a visit to this busy casual Asian eating experience. Food is served quickly and with love. Eat and go or take time to relax with a cold beer and great food.
