A great night out. A bunch of us were in town and looking for dinner. We didn’t have to look far because Dangerous Kitchen does excellent pizzas. No shortage of imagination.

Came here with friends. Food was delicious, we ordered a salmon pizza. I highly recommend their smoothies as well. We did have to wait a while to be served however service was friendly afterwards.

Stopped in for dinner at Dangerous Kitchen. The single waitress (another one arrived a bit later) was rushed off her feet but remained helpful and efficient. The food was outstanding!

Great dinner and pleasant service for a couple of hungry business travellers. We both had the organic beef burrito which was delicious.

We managed 3 trips here for meals and tea breaks in 2 days. Great food, indoor and outdoor seating choices in garden or roadside. Nice food, friendly helpful staff and locals too that we chatted with.
