We walked past the tourist traps and followed the locals to this place. I had the vegetarian plate and it was all very tasty and cheap. Loved the rukau and papaya salad.

This is a great place for chicken and I love the island chips was also convinced to try the spinach which I enjoyed and had never tried. The servings are enormous and half a chicken with my favorite chips and spinach was enough for 4.
