We had a the Kerabu Fish and keluak pasta which I personnaly did not enjoy as I felt it was too dry. The starters of what looks like vietnamese spring rolls, the chicken meat was a little hard and when I was served one of the portion fell off the platter and the waiter serving asked that I picked it up which I think is already a failure on part of the service. The waitress who took our orders however was friendly and attentive. Overall the food was so so, dessert was nice though, ambience wise - the music was too loud which made it a little hard to have dinner conversation. 11th Oct 2013

We are amazed at the average for this restaurant not being higher at the time of writing this. All food was freshly prepared with quality ingredients. The Vietnamese rolls were delicious. This was the best beef rendang we've ever tasted. The side dishes and salads added to the fresh flavour of the meal. We will go there again. We are very happy to have discovered this treasure. They have a very diverse and appealing menu. Staff and service were second to none.

The skin of the appetiser (Vietnamese Poh Piah) is very hard, practically difficult to bite it off.. Saw a few tables eating that, and find it comical when i see people struggling to bite it off.I didnt finish my appetiser. My partner had spagethhi and we find it very very salty. I had the cod fish, it seems like the fish is from those river kind, has a fishy taste... The dessert was ok finally.
