Lovely food, will definately go back. Friendly staff made us feel very welcome.
It was a bit quiet due to current circumstances, but nothing the restaurant can do about that.

Food was great, think we were forgotten about when initially seated but once order taken was fine.

Took some food home with us too and it reheated really well.

Should allow tips to be added to card machine as we tend not to use/handle cash since covid.

On the plus side:
- the food is excellent
- the waiters are pleasant and efficient
- it’s next door to the Frog & Bucket if you want to make it a full night out
On the downside:
- the tables are sticky
- the furniture is falling apart and the carpet (!) is very old

Food was fantastic. Even though it was roasting hot outside I amazed the waitress ( who was great) that I wanted a Prawn Tom Yam soup. I mean the Thais have it and it's a steamy hot Country so why not?
Followed by a Beef Rendang and some Roti's. Both were wonderful.

Can't rate the restaurant highly enough and will be going back as soon as. Only downside was the location. Can't people have an evening out without endless beggars and people looking for a brawl ruining the night?

The food was so delicious.. full of flavour. The customer service was brilliant.. we ordered vegetarian dumplings and they ended up having prawns in them.. they straight away asked if we wanted to replace it with something else and took it off our bill with an apology.

Despite booking a table for 19:30, we didn't get seated until 19:50. Then there was a long wait until we actually received menus.

After that, everything was good. The food was excellent and good value.

Unfortunately, the restaurant then marked us as a no-show, so we received an email from OpenTable asking what had happened...

Whilst promoted as a Malaysian Restaurant some of the dishes on the menu are Thai. However, the food is tasty and prices are reasonable. Service was prompt and the staff were very pleasant. I would recommend it.
