Have eaten here on many occasions in the past and last nights fiasco was the last time. Arrived to see note on the door...cash only due to line failure...once inside told no alcohol...change of owner being cited as the reason. More likely no licence.
The food was poor..satay with no vigour, industrial sauces, soft shell crab ok but the garnish was atrocious. Sent the noodles back...beef that used to be employed in a shoe along with dollops of sour soy paste, not all that attractive.
My nasi goreng was the worst I have ever seen. A mush of rice, frozen peas and the ubiquitous sauce.
They cancelled the noodles from the bill. Service gentle and polite at all time but the kitchen has worked its last evil in my mind.
Stay away. Nice new noodle house across the road...maybe that is why only 10 covers there in a three floor place that used to have a queue outside.

Avoid. A once great place to eat now dire in all respects. The restaurant needs to take down the signs that declare it is still joined with long ago closed Peter Street restaurant and the accolades of many years past. The food was either burnt or lukewarm the lamb was just this side of cooked on the satay dish and the garnish cold and uninviting. The decor is tired and gloomy the table tops covered in floor tiles! The toilets, though clean and airy, have industrial cleaning towels and a range of down market soap dispencers, Tesco value range anyone? Third world experience at a first world price. The tatty menus should have been a warning - many wines just crossed out with a pencil line!
