Delicious, cheap and fast! Got hooked on this place when I lived in Palmerston North and that restaurant was always busy. I was happy to see this restaurant when I moved to Lower Hutt and the food is just as tasty! Come here nearly every week and usually get the Chicken Green Curry and my partner gets the Deep Fried Chicked Noodle Soup.
Very modern, clean and brightly lit restaurant. Friendly service and reasonable prices with a great range of food. The food arrives at lightning speed; it felt as if my cousins and I had barely sat down before the meals started to arrive. I had the beef rice noodle soup. Normally in asian restaurants you would also receive extra condiments such as chili sauce, sugar, soy sauce, pepper etc when ordering noodle soups. This was not provided, but surprisingly it was absolutely delicious as it was… And I’m the type who loves to add heaped spoonfuls of sugar into my pho. Not that it was super sweet, just that it was so tasty and flavorful, I did not need to add anything. My cousin loves the curry puffs and sometimes we drive all the way from Stokes Valley just to get them. A warning though, my cousin ordered fried rice and asked for “very hot” and she couldn’t handle it, so make sure you’re a true heat fiend before asking for maximum spiciness.
Delicious food at reasonable prices, and they’re always very quick here. It functions nicely as both a takeaway and diner-type exprience. The simple decor of the resturant is nice. Good use of red and beige on the design.
It could be improved if:
-the menu had some extras. I wish you were just able to order some extra roti, or rice, or peanut sauce on the side, but there isn’t any option to do this.
-they’re a bit stingey on the satay sauce with the roti bread. The bread and sauce are just so yummy but you don’t get hardly any sauce and as I said before, there isn’t any option to add extra.
So, yes, a couple of small improvements could be made, but this is definitely becoming a fast favourite of mine in Lower Hutt.
