My wife & I found this wonderful restaurant quite by chance. The Cook Island Buses stop at Cooks Corner and the restaurant is tugged inside the courtyard. I had the charbroil chicken with a side of salad (with soda) and was in culinary heaven from the first bite. The Place ROCKS! Sadly we are back home and can not just... More

We stopped here for lunch and had the peri peri chicken wraps. They were fantastic and so full of flavour! They also have some really tasty drinks. Definitely recommend stopping here for lunch if your in town. Well priced as well.

The peri peri chicken was divine. Quite spicy (hot), just the way I like. They've got a few nice salads as well. My partner liked the curried paw paw.

Great place for lunch, the chicken is delicious and the peri peri wrap is delicious if you like spicy. My mother was looking everywhere for cooked taro and came across it here so that was a plus. Ate here twice for lunch and you can see straight into there clean kitchen. The food is cheap and quality and portions are... More

Had lunch here last week. Was very busy when I went in but you can expect that when the chicken is that good. Ordered half chicken with fries and gravy... Dam GOOD... Have been here once before and ordered the quarter chicken with fries and gravy, BUT I wanted more! I will definitely be dropping in for lunch more regularly... More

We ate here on 26 August 2013 after reading good reviews and were bitterly disappointed. The service was rude and we had to wait for ages (which is fine but when I went in to check I was told to sit and wait very rudely!). We finally got our meals and one had a tiny bit of gravy while the... More

Had a fantastic chicken wrap, with yummy sauce and salad. A great lunch option if you are in town, lots of seating and a great selection of food.

I've eaten alot of chicken and chips around the world and this is up there with the best anywhere. You can choose from a couple of different flavors of chicken and then add chips or salads and beautiful gravy. The staff are real friendly and the kitchen is spotless which reflects the pride they have for their business. This is... More
