Our business is a takeaway food outlet with a focus on cabinet food rather than made to order dishes. We have a core component of regular dishes on offer as we recognise the need for our customers to have familiarity but at the same time as the opportunity to try new culinary experiences. In addition to our daily dishes which showcase a spectrum of the most popular street food from around the globe, we also have the ongoing fortnightly "destination location" During each showcase period we explore the local foods from that location.
