Good place for a taste of local food and local snacky bites. Staff are very courteous n helpful. Variety of local food on the menu and at the pickup counters is great. Good value for money.

Check this place out for fish curry and Hoppers, local ice cream. This is an informal place nearby the Golden Cave temple. Lunch time is even better.

Ordered two portions of Vegetable Fried Rice in the downstairs restaurant. The dish came with a hot chili paste and an onion/pepper sauce that was delicious and went well with the rice. Could have had more vegetables, but for the price it was a great value.

The dinner was very tasty but unfortunatly not that filling. The service was good. Compared to other restaurants it was a little bit more expensive.

We went to dinner and the place was empty. They didn't have much of the items in the menu. We wanted to try traditional but they were more focused on Chinese.
