Hands down to the best quality customer service they offer. From the moment I came in until I left. This restaurant is easy to find too. The food was excellent with very reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend and go back.

They are not chilli heads as such but they did supply a true hot when I asked for it. If they understood masalas they would increase the other heat spices not just chilli. The meal was cheap, serving size good, mango shake fantastic.

Friendly staff. Fresh ingredient. Fish & Chip - fish is perfectly cook. Tender and moist. But let down by the chip - not crispy, slightly undercooked.

Gotta say, wasn't expecting an Aussie joint in a shopping centre to be so good. But it was, and then some.

I frequented Ayala Mall quite alot during December 2013 and this restaurant became a regular part of my day. Exceptional menu, awesome food and very tasty with a great staff, maybe a little to attentive. But overall a wonderful place with reasonable prices and an Australian flavor.
