Ordered chow mein, singapore noodles, chicken satay and squid. Chow mein tasted strangely sweet and the prawn crackers were odd too. Won't use again.

Yes, there is parking behind The Ship pub which is across the road from the restaurant. You need to drive around the block to access it. It is a pay and display parking.
