Heard that this place had nice Malaysian food. Had their new goreng and was very disappointed. Not authentic at all. More like noodles fried with sweet chilly sauce with some chilly spices.

We have been many times. Meals are reasonably priced for students. We have enjoyed our meals there. It's not an upmarket establishment. Food is prepared fresh.

This is the best Asian Cafe and restaurant you can find in Palmerston North. It has the combination of China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, Korea. If you enjoy Asian food, here is the right place. We love the pearl tea, coffee tea, chicken on rice, Korean rice cake and the fries noodle.

Impressive taste and great value for money. I highly recommend their Korean Hot plate Chicken and their Korean Sticky rice cake dishes.

I love this place. Great quality food to eat in or take out. The staff are super polite and always willing to cater to your needs. The bubble tea is delicious, my favourite is green apple. So good in summer.

Lots of menu options - all look great. Group of four ladies tonight all had different items and all looked great. I had the seafood Mee Goring and it was really lovely - lots of prawns which was great. Great prices too

This place is absolutely fantastic. The mixture of hot food, yummy sushi, sweet bubble tea. they have the cutest little scene. its a truly cafe themed restaurant. It's also not very expensive, it has the ability to become (dear i say it) a hipster cafe! Cozy and comfortable.
