I’m not a fan. So said my son on leaving the restaurant. The food was not bad but not great, either. Just kind of bland. The prices were no better than average, and the service was glacially slow. No reason to avoid it, but no reason to beat a path to its door, either. You can get more bang for... More

The food we got was okay if a bit pricey. It was the owners repeated attempts to sell me something to "smoke" that I found disturbing. We will never be back.

We waited for over an hour for chicken and I personally never received my meal. I was so excited to eat their "authentic" food. We had to leave to catch our flight. After waiting FOREVER, they tried to tell us we bought more drinks they we did and ordered more appetizers than we did. They never came to clean the... More

We stopped because the place looks really interesting and we thought we could grab kabobs and a drink and be on our way. Turns out the kabobs were really expensive ($25 Belize) and though the staff were almost falling over themselves to wait on us (we were the only people there) it took forever to get a kabob. The kabob... More

Don't go. The food is awful and the service is non existent. There are cheap beach stands that put this place to shame. Probably microwave everything. Noisy, hot, dirty with terrible service.

The food was okay, but pricy for what we had. Rotisserie chicken was a better value: the fish was overcooked and expensive. The owner was friendly & decor was fine. (I didn't check the ratings...) Food was slow to arrive.

My wife and I, when on vacation, like to make stops at local places to get a feel of the people rather than just doing typical tourist things. We drove by this place and we noticed they had hookah, so we stopped in to check it out and were welcomed whole heartedly. The owner took care of us as we... More

Kind of scary looking. Several of the local places don't look like much but are decent places to eat, but the opium 'pots' sitting on the front porch was enough to scare us away from this place. Which is a grocery and food 'place' ??

Stopped at this place because of the ROASTING WHOLE Chickens in a glass roasting oven, on side of covered porch! The aroma was heaven. But I love my lamb on occasion, and the sign said "Lamb Kabobs", besides other types. I had two full skewers full of tender meat, hummus w a swirl of olive oil, coconut rice was added... More
