Went here for the first time last week to discover delicious food for very little money. Full pork roast for $20 dollars!! Spot on! Yes its not the fanciest place in town but I think that's what makes it what it is, an excellent place to have a relaxed dinner

Absolutely loved the Thai snapper and the Goan fish. Best curries we have had in a long time. Friendly staff and quick service. Gorgeous! I'd go again.

Every day there are three or four special as well as an every day menu. I can't list all of our choices but my snapper served with a caper and coriander hollandaise sauce, served on a... More
