Visited there 2 days ago with colleagues. We had dinner and a few drinks. We ordered satay & tempura for appetizers; chicken pillow & green beef curry for the mains. Everything was mouth-watering. Their sticky rice was heavenly! I definitely would recommend this restaurant!

I really love their Cho Gao Platter. I wished they'll bring back the shrimp covered potato instead of the siomai. I do think its unique especially combined with the delicious peanut butter sauce! They serve good fish crackers for free while you wait for your food to come. I love their cocktails in here as well. I had Piñacolada and... More

Lots of great food choices. Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Indonesian food. Some dishes can get little pricey, but very high quality food with generous portions. The service was great. The decor is contemporary and casual. Would highly recommend.
