Some of the best scrambled eggs ever. Excellent 'kids breakfast' too. Despite being in a shopping centre the location feels 'away from it all'. Worth the quick drive. Recommended.

Stopped for breakfast. Was blown away. Whole family loved it. Serve was great, meals were amazing. Strawberry thickshake old style. Eggs benedict and corn fritters yummy. Everyone loved their coffee. Well done. I hate shopping too.

Located in the centre of the Sunshine Plaza. Very popular and convenient. Interesting menu and good choice with gluten free options. Service not quick but food well prepared and we had a very enjoyable lunch. Would return.

I've shopped at Sunshine Plaza about once a month for a number of years and this is my favourite lunch break. Love the BRAT sandwich but my new favourite is the tempura zucchini chips with a pearl cous cous salad. Fresh, delicious and the service is great. The waitress always remembers me - even my favourite meals. Pleasant setting, good... More

My friend and I stopped for lunch after a movie and choose the Meditterean salad with seared beef. We both prefer our steak a little over medium and requested this with no problem from the staff. It was perfectly cooked and with a very tasty salad it was one of the best lunch meals we have ever had. The cafe... More

I enjoyed my coffee and breakfast very much at Riba Kai. What a surprise in a shopping mall. The food was well cooked & very generous serves for the prices especially with the extras I added to my breakfast. Will eat there again.

I have been here a few times for both breakfast and lunch, the food and drinks are always spot on. Breakfasts are always fresh and tasty, and the coffee is smooth and creamy. Lovely places to sit, with friendly and helpful staff.
