Rather basic restaurant with no atmosphere the night we were there. Food was disappointing. Vegetables over cooked and tasteless.

A noisy restaurant directly on mainstreet. The food is average and offers something for everyone. Family orientated and more staff (mostly students) than necessary. Certainly better ones in the area, but if in hurry it is sufficient

Good value, great food. I recommend the Calamari. Main courses can be a bit on the huge side, but overall a nice, friendly restaurant. I'm eating there again tonight.

What a waste of time, money and energy. Food cold, plastered with MSG, service terrible, no atmosphere. Don't even bother.

Sadly not the greatest place in town. Cannot understand why the tour group operators insist on sending their passengers to this place - food is less than desirable and service is okay. Suppose the only nice thing is the décor...

The principle attraction for us was this restaurant's proximity to the Queens Hotel. In their defence, it was Heritage Day and the restaurant was extremely busy although they managed to find a table for us in the Smoking area (where thankfully no one was smoking). The menu is presented in the form of a newspaper with plenty of choices. I... More

Service was good, best spot for people watching. I had lamb curry - just average. Won't go back. Interesting menu - printed on newspaper filled with interesting detail.

We ate there 3 times. Each time the food was good with large helpings. It was fairly empty on each occasion. It was clean and welcoming even though it is sited on the main street. Good service on each occasion with quick service. overall a satisfactory eating place after a busy day

The place was empty and I can see why. The food was about as average as could be and the atmosphere was really dull. The lighting was poor and this added to the feeling of being somewhere where the people didn't care. The service was friendly but it didn't make up for the poor quality. The menus was extensive and... More
