Great menu. Prompt service with a smile. Strange location but nice vibe. And seriously delicious food. Can't go by the fried rice or the macadamia dough ice cream dessert.

You can check their menu online Mains would be about $15, most expensive on the menu is $30. The portions are quite big for me, but I eat like a bird :p
