This restaurant has lots of character and it caters to large groups. The belly dancers are georgeous and friendly and they definitely add to the atmosphere. Have been a number of times and it never disappoints.

One of the few restaurant still full considering it was a quarter to 9. Great first impression, then it went a bit down after that. We meant to go there so many times since we arrived in Darwin that the occasion presented itself finally. I...More
