Saw other aboriginal dancers in Uluru who were much better. The food was disappointing and the whole show a bit "silly". They did do group participation which some people love.

Enjoyed all the shows that we're going on and all the interesting stories that were told by the aboriginals. Shown how to throw a boomerang and how to get music from the digeredoo. Had some food in the restaurant, not up to much, but passable. An enjoyable day.

We arrived today to find this place all closed up and totally empty. There is construction going on in the street. Not even a sign posted!!! How disappointing !

Very very early open. Staff awake and happy. Really interesting place to visit. Sit outside nice big solid timber tables facing mall full of trees. Fresh and fun menu food cooked and presented well. Good coffee. Nice little touch of a glass of water and complimentary paper as soon as I sat down.

The food is fantastic here and it is not expensive, you could take the whole family for a meal. I love the imagination of the menu and they are not afraid of trying new things. The staff are lovely and nothing appears to be too much trouble for them. I have been here many times and will be returning again.
