Very nice dinner

We were there in mid-January and had a fabulous fish curry. As we would have liked to have another tasty meal we returned on Sunday evening for dinner again but it was closed without notice. The next day we tried again but now it was closed until Wednesday. Aha.

We really enjoyed eating here. The food was very fresh with great flavour. Apparently everything is made fresh on the premises & you can tell. Service was also good.

Seeing the reviews for this place we had to try it!!!!! It truly is excellent food. We went as a family and were a little worried about having a 7 yr old with us who wouldn't eat a great deal but we didn't have to worry about that because she ate just as much as we did. All the meals... More

Went to The Sand Bar on NYE. The food was excellent. Great service - nice and relaxed. We also had the wonton prawns, duck and a curry mackerel which was superb. Highly recommend.

After a great day sailing on Big Mama off we went for some dinner. Eyeing off the restaurants this one looked to meet the bill, and we were on our non-Bali holiday. And were we impressed! Paw paw salad, duck, pork belly, squid, stir fried greens....everything was mouth watering and perfection. Who need to go to Bali, when this is... More

Glad that we drove back from paronella park to have dinner at Mission beach as this is one of the best place I've been to for dinner. We ordered the crispy pork belly with thai salad, crispy chicken and mackerel in thai curry, with rice. The whole pork belly was fried crispy, which was different from what we had expected... More

We shared between us the amazing brown fried rice, crispy skin chicken and an incredible mackerel curry...it was the BEST curry I've ever had! Absolutely to die for! Everything was... More
