Great value for money meals and very accommodating to dietary requirements, we usually order the Fish pack with veggie patties instead of the fish and you can have salad and rice to make it a very healthy and tasty meal! Only downside is that they only have dinner on Friday nights so pretty busy due to Friday night drinks, would be good if there was a separate line to order food! The owner is very friendly and the food tasty so we keep coming back for more.
Very good food, decent enough service, good atmosphere, great location. Had the steak sandwich, was a good blend of sweet, sour and salty, think they used some kind of chutney?
