Appetit Food for Thought
Ranked #8 of 48 Restaurants in Ladysmith
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 15, 2016 via mobile

This small restaurant caters to many locals for breakfast and lunch. Easy to see why : good standard fare like English breakfast or eggs Benedict but also original specials like Thai beef with noodles. It is very tasty, portions are generous, everything is cooked fresh in front of you by the owner. The two ladies on staff are friendly and welcoming.

A one man band, Martin Tang who is the Chef/Owner of this small restaurant in downtown Ladysmith is indeed special. He cooks to order and we decided to have one of his many specials yesterday lunchtime, what a delight!
His chicken with a mild curry sauce and veggies on a bed of rice was superb, more than enough for lunch and at a very reasonable cost of $10.99.
Watching him create this masterpiece is well worth the price of admission and Martin is a friendly outgoing kind of guy who needs to know who he is cooking for.
Drop by on the main street and enjoy both the meal and his company.

Sort of stumbled into this place. We were looking at a menu in a bistro across the road which didn't take our fancy. looked around and saw a blackboard with menu items across the road. Went over there and peeped through the door. Decor not that impressive but the cook came to the door to welcome us in and we kind of just took a seat. Its small and you can see exactly whats being cooked on the stove in front of you. I think he only does breakfast and lunches. Theres a lot of food choices and to be honest, we were glad we went. Food was very good as was the price. would definitely go back.

Martin is a fine dining chef, proven in fine dining industry but loves running his own open kitchen restaurant. Absolutely outstanding food! Martin will accommodate food allergies and cook something safe, without contamination, right in front of your eyes. Friendly staff, excellent service, low prices.
