The food was great; however, the wait staff were terrible! From the moment we entered the restaurant the waitresses were not welcoming, they kept rolling their eyes every time we asked for water or asked a question about the menu choices, and one waitress accused one of us for not paying, only to find out another waiter already took our...

OMG the food portions are definitely worth the money that you pay for a meal and the taste of them was excellent. We had a big party of 45 and they were able to cater for that. The food come out quickly, which was great. They were able to split bills which was awesome. We loved it so much, we... More

We came here for my birthday meal. It was quiet but we were there early and got a table without a reservation. I had lobster and my partner had a pasta dish. It was large portions and really lovely! Definitely one to go visit if you are wanting to fine dine in Apia!

Food was nice, we ordered Sashimi entree I had tried chicken and chips and my boyfriend had fish and chips lol we didn't order the lobster or steak but after having our meals maybe we should have.

The rstaurant is about a 10 minute drive out of Apia heading up the Cross Island road. The sign is difficult to see so look for the Curry House on the left and turn down the dirt road beside it and Kokobanana is at the back. Easy parking. The restaurant is open air and very large. They do have specials.which... More

A local recommended this restaurant to us as my husband wanted lobster. It is quite a way out of town but so worth the drive. When we arrived the restaurant was doing a roaring business and it was mainly locals so you know it's good food and atmosphere. I had the NZ sirloin which was amazing but my husband raved... More
