Had a lovely dinner with the family. The food was great and the waiting staff were friendly and helpful. Meals did not take long to get to the table once it was ordered. The dry lamb was superb yet once again. This is a place you keep coming back to.

A group of us keep coming back to 101 as the food is always good and excellent value. The "dry lamb" - is anything but its description - being beautifully moist and falls apart in your mouth. The fish is also very good here.

Ate here with family including my 90 year old father in law for about the third time. The food is always nice - a cross between Thai and Chinese. We had a range of entrees, spring rolls, curry puffs and the prawn fritters, all of which were very nice. We shared three mains and still couldn't finish it, a nice... More

The duck is my favourite, but curried prawn were also fresh and tasty. The hosts are lovely people and do remember you when you visit often. Meals are always at an exceptional standard and the portion sizes are great.

Thank srefsdfsdfsdf .
