Nasi Lemak Korner Mosman Park

Mosman Park

Gerard dined on Sun, 11th Dec 2016 (8)

Welcome addition of this casual modern Asian diner to the Western Suburbs eating scene - a few teething issues (eg. service attention despite being a fairly small venue ie. had to get up to find wait staff twice; laksa was luke warm; murtabak underseasoned but anchovies oversalted) but the signature Nasi Lemak dish was an impressive and generous serve - also some tasty looking seafood dishes on surrounding tables...

Great authentic Chinese food excellently cooked Nice restaurant fitout Great service from Rocky the maitre'd who was very personable The only downside is the restaurant's location - it's a little bit away from the other Chinese restaurants in Northbridge and near the nightclub/bar end which means busy Fri/Sat nights and drunk punters on the street later in the evening...

Big El's Latin American Fusion

Northbridge

Gerard dined on Tue, 10th Dec 2013 (8)
