I’m not into franchise restaurants, but wanted seafood and not to travel far. Reviews were good so checked them out. The sushi was fresh and well made. But the prawns really were killer! Good friendly service and worth a return visit.

Jimmy's always has great food, my only complaint is that when they have a special on their killer prawns, it is a bit disappointing as the portion is smaller and inconsistent as we were 4 at the table and all received different portion sizes

Not all outlets of Jimmy's Killer Prawns are the same. This one must qualify as one of the best. Excellent food with very good service.

The food was great as well as the service. The centre was still under construction and a bit dusty around the centre but the restaurant itself was clean and neat and stylishly decorated.

The venue is good and the staff are friendly and efficient. The food is amazing and the fish is as fresh as being on the coast. I have been there a good many times and each time has been with a smile.
