We stopped in for dinner this week and had a great meal. We sat and talked to the owner in between periods of time he was busily attending to other guests. It is a relaxed setting with a great selection on the menu. Our teenagers had the burgers, I had the curry lamb and my wife had the pork loin.... More

I stopped in for dinner one night and the place was pretty busy. The kitchen wasn't able to keep up with the orders (in a timely manner) and I eventually opted for the chicken kabobs from the front of the restaurant.

I just stopped here for a beer, and got chatting with the owner, Roger, who is ultra friendly. Menu looks good, with a mix of Thai and Western food. I am determined to try the bratwurst, which is sourced from a German maker on the mainland. There is a rotisserie where you can get grilled chicken kebab as a takeaway... More
