The food was delicious, the staff lovely and I’m waddling away sated and happy. Thoroughly recommend venturing out to something on the menu that you haven’t tried. Kimchi fried rice was fabulous.

Went in for a quick bite and was surprised at the extent of the menu. I had the prawns which were fully peeled and there were heaps. My partner had the pork katsu. Both were delicious and the staff were super friendly. One of the...best places to eat Asian food in Airlie and a reasonable price. Highly recommend for the meal sizes.More

We over heard someone talking about this place & wow it did not disappoint! Sweet & sour sauce was delicious (great cuts of meat inside not like some places that are fatty or off cuts). Some of the best fried rice I’ve ever had &...the garlic prawns were fresh and good sized. The service was 10/10. We went the first night with family and came back the next night for take away to watch the footy back in our room. Do yourself a favour & get the chicken bites to start, you won’t be disappointed!More

Don’t understand the rave reviews we only ate here once. It’s in a small internal courtyard so there’s no nice view. Staff were friendly but we didn’t really rate the food. Calamari was the usual frozen and fried bland variety. Beef cheeks were ok. Beef...with pepper sauce was thick flavour less pieces of beef in a very heavy thick gluggy sauce that wasn’t very nice. We didn’t like the food at all.More

Restaurants that aren’t directly on the Main Street struggle in this town. But this restaurant is amazing!! From the environment to the food, cannot complain at all! The service is great too. Definitely a place to try out. Refreshing bubble tea is great too!

We, a table of 3 had dinner here on Friday 26th. The girl when I was paying politely ask me to review the restaurant on Trip Advisor... so ok I will. Dinner was excellent. She was so helpful to advises dishes that suited our tastes....The food was very like nothing we have had before in any Asian restaurant, it was exceptional. Thankyou to the staff & chef.More

Staff were really helpful in ensuring they could cater for our vegan and gluten free requirements. The sweet and sour tofu was awesome.
