From our experience Noosa is certainly not an epicentre of fine Asian dining. Our experiences with most of the Thai restaurants have been disappointing to say the least. Therefore to find an establishment that serves very good Malaysian food that satisfied us all was a refreshing change. The Laksa's were excellent value and the dim sums also tasty and enjoyed....

This was not a positive experience- it took over an hour to get our main courses. Food was mediocre. Setting of the restaurant was odd - we just had a table added on the street literally in front of the nextdoor store. The staff was extremely nice but also very busy. I do not recommend.

We are regular diners. Love the steamed wontons, laksa, Singapore noodles, Malaysian chicken curry. Everything is reasonably priced.

Fried rice and Singapore noodles were excellent. Sweet and sour pork was disappointing. Friendly service, reasonably priced

Randomly decided to eat here for dinner after walking by and seeing the crowd and smelling the delicious aromas! +: amazing char kuay teow, nice chili fish and nasi goreng, roti nice and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside -: Singapore laksa and satay chicken a bit bland, nasi goreng was nice but didn't use much of...

Hawkers food fans go no further. On offer is a comprehensive menu of Malaysian, Indonesian and Indian food. Dining street side is akin to being in Singapore or KL. FREE BYO - Wine only. The menu is laced with chef's specialities and when you try them for yourself they can quickly become your regular 'go-to'. I have and continue to... More

We stopped here because it was busy and thought that it would be a good choice. We ordered Thai green curry and a ginger veg dish. The Thai green curry was supposed to be medium, but what we got was sweet. Didn't taste like a Thai curry at all. It was not terrible, but not a curry. The ginger veg... More

This restaurant had very friendly service. The dishes were a mixture of Malay, Thai, Indian and Chinese. The dishes were somewhat tasty although not particularly authentic. The poppadoms were overly oily, the roti was lacking flakiness and texture and the Rendang contained quality beef although lacking depth. A fun place to eat for the variety and value.

We had Tom Kar Gai (coconut chicken soup) and Tom Yum Goong (king prawn soup) and salt and pepper calamari. Soups were ok but nothing special, calamari pices (not even rings) were really bad. When we asked for lemon and chili souce the waitress was not happy😉. Would not recommended this place eventhough seems popular and busy.
