What I ate:
Sample Plate (for 2) – spring rolls, shrimp salad roll, chicken and pork brochette, minced shrimp on sugarcane, beef wrapped in heart leaves and vermicelli salads
  • 8/10
  • It’s a nice dish to order when you want to try a bit of everything – we shared this between 4 people
  • Good amount of each dish, nice sample
  • Lots of flavour
Sate Peanut Noodle
  • 7/10
  • The noodles were okay, but not my favourite
  • The soup base did have peanut flavour but I would prefer MORE peanut flavour
Chicken and Vegetable Chow Mien
  • 6.5/10
  • Disappointing – not much noodles
  • The chicken and vegetables were just okay
Charboiled Lemongrass pork chop rice plates
  • 7.5/10
  • The lemongrass pork chop had a nice smoky flavour and not too dried out
  • The rice goes well with the lemongrass pork
Summary: Some good dishes. Lots of potential
