    Given the high quality of Asian food on the Sunshine Coast this did not meet expectations. Food was very bland.

    I tried calling to adjust my booking but the number was busy for three hours straight. I assume it wasn’t connected. Staff were lovely and friendly. But three servers were just standing around talking all night. Maybe over staffed or they need direction on other things to do. I only comment about this as they were right next to our table. Food was quick and nice. The menu was more entree meals than full meals. Glad I tried the place, but not for me. Only other downside, there were about 8-10 flies all over our table all night, we were eating with one hand and waving them away all night. Every off putting.

    First time at Rickshaw and we will be back. The food was excellent and the staff were fabulous. A very very minor complaint and not their fault at all but as an open air restaurant we were somewhat bombarded by flies … (it won’t stop us going back). The barramundi curry was outstanding

    We attending with a group of 4 of us, hoping for a great experience. On arrival it was super quiet, almost awkward as we were sat next to a couple obviously there on a date night. Service wasnt overly friendly, nor did they advise us they didnt have 3 of the items on the menu until we went to order 30 minutes after arriving. We asked if they usually have music or anything, to which they had forgotten to turn it on! Food was nice, but overpriced and nothing special. Expected a much better experience from what we had seen on social media and heard about the place.

    Left very disappointed, went for a birthday dinner. They rang two hours before our booking to bring it forward as the kitchen was closing. Sat us outside with no music, no atmosphere just the sound of the overly excited man three tables over. Food came out in groups, 4 spring rolls, one for each table that ordered, 2 pork rice bowls, 1 for each table that ordered. Instead of all our food together. Lots of items sold out, including lemonade?? Waitress very rushy and no charm. Lots of other places to book over here.

    Sorry guys but our experience was not positive. We are locals and we’re so disappointed as we heard to many positive things. Outlined below: - we ordered the tofu tacos: look amazing and if it Wendy covered in spicy sauce, it would have been edible. I love a good curry, however the spice was not tolerable. When giving feedback to one of the waiter, he gave us the look of, almost unbelievable. Also, there is not mention of spice of the that dish at all. - it was a hot day and we got 1 glass of water each for our sitting. I would have rathered the bottle on our table. Even through the restaurant was not busy, we still found it difficult to gain anyone’s attention to get more water. Sadly, we won’t be back. No thank you do anything, which is a little astounding. I needed to give you feedback as really, it wasn’t good and we live local. Thanks for reading my feedback Jodie

    The food was good. If you are into wine, it’s not the right place. Only 3 ordinary reds to choose from. Can’t understand why they don’t allow BYO wine if they can’t offer their customers proper wine.

    Enjoyed the food and service at The Rickshaw. Limited choices but sufficient options available. The $20 Aperol Spritz however, which was served in a stemmed white wine glass, wasn’t up to standard in size, quality, or presentation. But don’t let that stop you from making a booking, everything else was great. Enjoy

The menu has very tasty options, we had a table of eight and most of us shared dishes so we got to try alot of different dishes and we enjoyed all of them. Definitely recommend Rickshaw.

    Food is delicious and didn’t have to wait too long but some of the people in our group didn’t get their food until 15 minutes after the rest of us. Wait staff were slow to take away plates and only half were taken away, had to ask for the rest to be removed even after dessert was delivered.

    The food was beautiful, however we were very disappointed in the timing of the food delivery. Some pf our party ordered entree as their main, and were told that this would come out at the same time as the main meals. This was not the case, as in our party of 7, there was approximately 1 1/2 hours between the first person receiving their meal, and the last receiving theirs. The food was very tasty, fresh and true to the menu.

    Had 4 shared plates of Kombu Bugs, Asian Greens, Duck Springs Rolls & Baby Squid ... this meal was absolutely delicious... great flavours & the lychee Mojito was amazing.... thoroughly enjoyed our lunch & staff were very friendly. Only bad thing were the flies that were everywhere when our meals came out..... so maybe sliding screen doors or flaps. Very yummy food.

    I had been wanting to try The Rickshaw for months as the menu looked great. Unfortunately it was very disappointing. Bugs were way over cooked, prk & rice had far too much soy sauce & the curry sauce for the Roti & curry sauce had an odd flourey/powder texture. The duck spring rolls were the only enjoyable item we ordered.
