Just beautiful food. Friendly staff. Deserves to be busier! The vermicelli noodles are particularly good.

Better off getting a takeaway, you don't get barely anything for your money, when getting a takeaway there's plenty. Won't be returning to eat in. But I will continue to get a takeaway. Just warning. If your looking to try this out, get a takeaway first.

Fantastic food in a lovely area of Cowbridge. Fantastic food, great flavour and not too salty. We had a take away which was 30 minutes later than stated time, so be weary they make you wait longer than they originally say. But it's worth the wait. Would be a good idea for them to look at this on a Saturday... More

Picked up a takeaway from here beginning of December. Told me it would be ready to collect in 10 minutes and it was. The restaurant was very quiet, shame as it is in nice location. Ordered Special Curry which was nice, Sweet and sour Chicken which was above average and the Crispy Shredded Beef which I'm afraid to say was... More

Great local, would highly recommend. The satay chicken is awesome, along with black bean sauce dishes too. It's a good one, give it a try.

Visited this place several times. Always a nice welcome, be it eating in or having a take away. Food choice is good and quality is excellent. Special deals can be even better value. Would highly recommend.
