This was our second dinner here, service was excellent, very friendly. We had the Swiss burger, which was very tasty and great value, and the Red Thai chicken and rice, which was excellent. A very interesting menu, extremely reasonable prices, definitely worth coming to this lovely little out of the way restaurant, We will be back and will be recommending... More

We have ate there a few times now and have enjoyed the experiences. Loved the owners and the food was much better then you would expect for its location and size. Being a server myself the four stars we gave are well deserved probably even a 4.5 😉

Thank you for your review Jason! Having being served by you in the past, at your location, I would give 'you' five stars. Servers are a hard group to please because they are hyper-aware, when it comes to food and what a restaurant offers, so this means a lot coming from you :) More

Just returned from another great meal. The owners are the chefs and they do a fantastic job. They've recently changed up the menu and I love the fact that they've added appetizers to the menu as well. Tonight I tried the Lousiana chicken with waffles, coleslaw and Mac & cheese. What an odd wonderful combination! 3 orders of the bami/nasi... More

Thanks to TripAdvisor for steering us toward this hidden gem. International menu with lots of variety. We had the Thai red curry chicken with rice and the Indonesian stir fry; both were wonderfully flavourful and cooked just right. Very personable chef came to our table at least 3 times to chat with us; showed us a tamarind pod and explained... More

We had lunch there. It was very pleasant. The price was reasonable. I had a Hamburg (I think it was called Joes burger) and a side Caesar salad. My husband had The French connection. He was pleased. Nice people!! I would recommend this place for a down home lunch.

Thank you for your review Claudia. We do try our best to keep the prices reasonable, especially since we do not use any frozen foods, and make everything from scratch. The 'Jerry's Burger' is what you most likely had. It is named after one of our most loyal customers who has been with us from day one, and this is... More
