My friends went to the Clayton location of Kotaraya, and they sold me on the different array of asian fusion dishes. Centre Road is convenient enough, yet I just wanted to stay close to the city, so I went with another friend of mine to the Acland Street restaurant for dinner.

It could have been that I had high expectations of this establishment, especially in offering an all round Asian experience. This establishment serves up Chinese, Malaysian and Thai cuisines to name. Their menu just wants to make any regular restaurant eater salivate and open up sesame. Their main dishes are just spectacular, although their entrees and mains (particularly with the gorgeous Chinese banquet) was a little bit disappointing - maybe because my standards were so high to begin with.

I mean, if a restaurant serves a range of banquets, lunch, dinner and takeaway menu's you expect to be in for a real treat. Kotaraya, I wanted to say how much I love you, but I can't. You're alright though.

Ordered the Chinese banquet. The spring rolls looked like they were frozen, although the soup made up for this flaw. Their garlic king prawns were just divine, although the fried rice was a little bland.

Will I come back here? I might, although I won't go the Chinese next time. Chinatown would be a safer option. Might give the Thai a go next time.
