This Restaurant/Cafe was fantastic. The food and flavours were great. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Asian food. Takeaways also, but we enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff were excellent, food amazing. Definitely better than some other restaurants we tried whilst in Rarotonga.

This little restaurant has a great casual vibe - awesome service - and some really good Asian style food. Varied menu options, lots of vegetarian and non-meat choices.

Thank you so much, a lot of people love the gluten free options, and are pleased to know we even try to keep in stock gluten free soysauce for special requests (though as with other ingredients it is sometimes unavailable due to erratic shipping) More

We ate at this restaurant twice during our week on Rarotonga. The food was of a high standard and the service was very good. Loved the salt and pepper squid and the vegetarian dish.
