Wonderful. Each plate tasted really good, try their signature dishes, trust me and many other reviewers. Jasmine tea was jasmine tea, also bubble tea was top (my wife ordered it). Guy at the counter loves cats, make him smile talking about yours.

We enjoyed the delicious beef cheeks, chicken bites and curried vegetables. If we were staying longer in Airlie Beach we would definitely return. The service was friendly, and although busy, the meals arrived promptly.

Visited as a group of four and luckily decided to book. The food was fresh and delicious with great flavours and lots of options. The restaurant was warm but had a great vibe with attentive staff and a good variety of drinks! Thank you!

A little restaurant highly concentrated on our food and quality. Only use fresh local produce and cook with our hearts, no M.S.G added is our philosophy, we just cook our food fresh to order. Cool Lala offres the coolest drink Bubble Tea, house made Dim sum, authentic Chinese/ Asian dish and street eat!! We are located at the courtyard right next to the Airlie Lagoon, on street parking or council parking on either side of the Airlie Beach lagoon, then a short stroll under the canopy of giant Mortern Bay trees.
