Thank goodness we tried this place for lunch. Reminds me of the flavours of Chin Chin in Melbourne. You must try the pork belly steamed buns, half price coffin bay oysters from 12 and the Asian slaw. Wish we had more time to go back.

Enjoyable menu with lots to choose from (Drinks and Food). Chicken Drumsticks and Pork Belly the highlights. Service a little disappointing. Didn't give much and not overly helpful with plate choices but only a minor concern. Definitely worth a visit.

A cosy restaurant on the verge of the central hub in Broome which provides an extensive menu range in Asian and local cuisine. The staff are friendly and obliging and are keen to explain the menu in detail especially the 'chef's specials' and this adds to the ambience and enjoyment of eating in this establishment.

The tapas/sharing plates are great. We went for dinner when booking is a must. Shared three tapas dishes of port belly, squid and tofu with a fantastic pawpaw salad; plenty for two. Service was a bit of a let down with only half our pates cleared at the end of the meal - very odd especially as they weren't busy.

Our first night in Broome. Went here on spec as close to our accommodation. Very busy considering the end of the dry season. Service a bit slow but worth the wait. Food terrific, atmosphere tropical and friendly wait staff.

The Aarlie is essentially an outdoor bar and restaurant with good, dependable food in an accessible and relaxed setting.

Relaxed atmosphere (the view over the car park is classic Broome), Food was tasty with a twist of spice. like most of things in Broome, the service was casual but attentive.
