good, cheap, easy bain marie fare that crosses over many asian cuisines, from malay, chinese, indian, indonesian - you want a decently cheap, hearty & quick asian inspired meal, look no further than this place. its not really what you would consider a romantic setting, but nor is it cheap & tacky, but you dont come here for the atmosphere, you come here to get fed!
