We found this restaurant to be quite eccentric in combinations and flavours. Seems a lot of local Chemainians like it and would agree it's an acquired taste.

It doesn't look like much inside or out, but this place has awsome home cooked meals. A must try is the breaded curry chicken breast, but just a 1/2 order. A full order is just too much! Great, friendly service.

Good prices, great service and consistent quality food. Breakfast all day. One of the best examples of "Cowichan Curry", a local version of curry that has been served in the area since the 40's. Breaded chicken or prawns served over either fries, rice, coleslaw or a combination of the three and smothered in curry gravy. It'm my favorite restaurant in... More

They have a huge Chef Salad that is very fresh as well as a good selection of items on the menu. Steak and Prawns was on special for $15.95. Service is very efficient and... More

The front desk staff at our hotel in Duncan recommended this place to our family for breakfast. It was a very pleasant experience. Great value and good portion size!

Stopped by on our way back to Nanaimo. Older restaurant with good old fashioned food and service. There were two waitresses who worked extremely hard all the time we were there. There was a constant stream of diners, many of whom the waitresses called by name. A real family dining experience.

Great breakfast selection with breakfast special deal (before 10:00 a.m.) I had ham and 2 eggs with homestyle real potatoes for hasbrowns, and choice of toast. So filling; couldn't finish it! Loved the comfy booths; but liked that they could accommodate a large group if needed. The servers are very friendly; service was great. Even though they were very busy,... More

While I agree with a previous comment about the cool dining area the food more than makes up for it. Ordered the clubhouse with onion rings..big servings and decent prices for all menu items. If you are passing by...give it a try.
