“Great for a quiet bite to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

This would be my usual stop in for a bite to eat during a shopping trip, the foods not bad, you get what you pay for, but the real attraction is te great and fun staff, they just add to the great crai of the place and the hole underground basement feel really reflects the hole underbelly theme of the city.

“Great food cheap prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

The food here is excellent quality for the price. You will definitely get a good feed here, the staff are excellent, a lack of sunlight as set in a basement, but all in all a very good experience
