Tasty laksa for lunch. A return for dinner was disappointing. Rendang was a bland stew. Dishes did not have authentic spices or presentation. Would only go back for laksa.

Best coffee we've had in Darwin. Very refreshing cold water . Lovely decor and friendly staff. Just the spot to refresh after shopping or looking around town.

Delicious cheap laksa, huge variety, BBQ pork, chicken, seafood, combination, wanton, the list is endless. Also specialise in other soups and Asian dishes. Quick service and always busy.

Came all the way to Darwin to fan the flame for a Rendzvous Laksa, and was sorely disappointed. New premises, chaotic service, and ordinary laksa. Who puts cabbage in a laksa? 1 x half piece of tofu, cabbage instead of Bean shoots, and smaller bowls...More

The service was slow, the chicken penang (at $14) uninspiring and the spring rolls average. Sorry guys, got to call it like I see it. It was a busy lunch period and the service was friendly.
