Visited here after a very active day. Food was delicious, I had pad thai, my husband had the rendang curry, both dishes were very good. Relaxed atmosphere, resturant was busy, waitresses & waiters all nice and friendly.

We had a party of 5 with three adults and two teens and were provided plenty of food. Burgers and meat pies were very tasty and the fries were great. Well worth a visit if you are hungry and looking for a casual dining experience...More
