Taking the place of My Tho City Restaurant, Couch Potato offers a variety of so-called comfort foods including burgers, pizzas and tacos. The restaurant is aptly named, with many of its seating being that of the restaurant's namesake.
The base of the Pedro Sanchez Pizza had a nice degree of toasted flavour. The combination of pepperoni, salami and chorizo gave the pizza its delectable smoky flavour and jalapenos added a delightfully spicy kick. The prawns are not a normal part of the pizza but were added as compensation due to our first choice, Amalfi Coast, not being available during our visit.

We were delighted that the flesh of the fried chicken in the Double Fried Chicken Burger was juicy and set off nicely by the crisp coating. Spicy tomato relish added a spicy taste that was not too intense and was tempered by the couch sauce. Some lettuce completed the dish by providing some freshness.

Their beef burgers were also enjoyable to eat, with the beef patty in the Miss Mexico Burger being succulent and had a good amount of char. The combination of jalapenos and spicy couch sauce provided spiciness that should be suitable for most tastes, and the onion rings added a nice crunch. We chose to omit the cheese as my father does not like having cheese in his burger.

While we chose a small-sized serving of their Mac & Cheese, the portion size was actually generous enough to be shared. The macaroni was cooked al dente and the amount of cheese was not too excessive. Breadcrumbs topped the dish to provide a bit of crunch.
Their Onion Rings were of a good size and the batter coating gave them a lovely crunch. The couch sauce served alongside the dish as a dipping sauce was very delicious, with a smoky flavour that reminded us of chipotle chillies.
While we thought the Sweet Potato Fries could have been crispier, it still had the slightly sweet flavour we like. They were also sprinkled with a bit of salt to lift their flavour without making them too salty. The aioli served with the dish notably had a slight tang to it.

The décor of the restaurant gave it a cosy ambience with the choice of indoor or undercover outdoor seating. Those who chose to order their pizzas for takeaway can enjoy various deals such as two large pizzas, garlic bread and a 1.25L drink for $37.
