We often go here to celebrate with friends and family; and enjoy the various food on their menu. Their serving is a bit on the small side but big on their flavour!

We have been making bookings for 8 people for years on Mother's Day and Father's Day. They refused to book us in without a minimum 10 people now. Ridiculous.

Get there right on opening if you want to sit and eat straight away, as by 6pm you've got a decent wait on a typical crowded weekend night. We got the beef masaman curry. Soooo tender, and an excellent portion size. The penang curry was...More
