We called in here for an impromptu meal was surprised how busy this resterraunt was (you know what they say about a busy place, Ans the food is good). We had a range of traditional bbq pork, chicken Luxor etc, all fresh, well presented, all veges just crisp to the bite. All good with the service.

Fantastic friendly staff, great food and great prices. Also the staff were very accommodating and understanding about my meal needing to be gluten free and went out of their way to give me a fantastic meal that wasn't going to make me sick. Excellent service.

Great service but a bit disappointed with a meal at our table which was requested hot hot spice and it was very lacking in hot spice and requested additional chillies which were still mild. Others enjoyed their meals.
