We needed to find a fun & kid friendly restaurant for 4 adults & 4 kids and boy did this place hit the mark. Great food & fun atmosphere for both young and old particularly for a group of 8

If you would like a delicious lunch prepared in front of you at a great price, this is the place! The restaurant is tired and seen better days but the food continues to be good. For $15 you get salad, miso, a meat, veg and dessert. You sit around the hot plate and watch your food being prepared by an... More

We booked-in a week prior to Mother's Day for lunch. We arrived 5 minutes late due to parking issues. At the reception, the lady told us to stand aside and wait for the server to take us the table. After 5 minutes of waiting, a server approached us and asked again about our reservation. He then took us about the... More

I think I was being generous with my ration of 2. They only received that because the people we were sitting with at the table were nice. The atmosphere was nit very pleasant. The chef was really miserable and the food was incredibly bad, we will not be going back for certain.

This restaurant is truly phenomenal. I've been going here for years, and now I drive up to two hours just to eat here! The service is excellent and lunch is the best value for a meal you'll find in the city. Fun for kids too, highly recommended!

Booked for my daughters birthday on her request. Our party of six arrived to be told I had not booked with them by the person I spoke to on the phone. He even went so far as to phone Albany to check I had not made the booking with them! Suggest better attention to recording a booking would be a... More
