    The food is delicious and very good value for money. $39 for two starters, two mains and a side. Plenty food for two, in fact probably three or four people. We came back after having eaten here last year and thinking the same thing. The service was prompt and friendly. The outdoor seating is by the roadside, so it’s busy with traffic but I always prefer outdoor dining when I can. Casual dining. Tasty food. Great service. Can’t ask for more.

    The curry is amazing. The hot chi minh cocktail was sooooo good and the staff were great. We went on a Monday night and it was packed. Booking is essential because it’s so popular, making walk ins a bit tricky. Highly recommended.

    Excellent service and food. Good pricing and our party of four all agreed on how good the restaurant was. The only minor is no toilet and a bit small, but overall the ambiance was good. We loved it and can recommend it.

    The cheapest and most AMAZING banquet in Melbourne. We had the lovely Emily as our waiter, she was so lovely and helpful. This is hands down, the best Asian Fusion banquet I have ever had. For $39 each, you and your partner choose 2 small, 2 large and a side. The meals are huge, and the value for money is incredible. We loved the whole experience, my entire family enjoyed everything that came out.

Food was wonderful and came out quickly with fresh amazing dishes. Drinks were well made and delicious and again were quick to reach our table. Best place for a date

    The waitress that served us was very friendly and helpful. We had the Get Dishy Wit It which was great value at $78 for 2 people. The food was overall very good although we didn't enjoy the Vietnamese curry so much. The chicken wings however were so good. I could've just eaten them! The cocktails were also mostly great. Would definitely return!
