We stumbled across this restaurant by accident while staying a night in Ruakaka. It was awesome food & great service. Very authentic & extremely well priced. We all were very impressed with this little gem. The best thing about this little town by far.

this is very unassuming resturant. All three dishes we had were very tasty and enjoyable. Very good service topped it off.
