How clean is it

Although we found the food good the bathroom leaves lots to desire. Unfortunately the bathroom needed to have a good cleaning floor to ceiling. Lots of webs hanging everywhere and floors need to be scrubbed

I have to say this is a truck stop, so I was not expecting too much. I hear the curry chicken is wonderful, well they should stick to that! The waitress, an older gal was a # 1, first class, ace waitress. She was working the room by herself and had at least 25 customers coming and going. But: I... More

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.

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.

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

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.
