“Good food, awful service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

When we were walking pass the restaurant, the manager convinced us to come in and try the ostrich steak. He was nice and we were sold on buying a big dinner. However, he forgot to tell us that the restaurant was closing in less than an hour. He left the restaurant shortly after and by the time we got our food the staff started closing the place, turning off all of the lights and staring at us as if we had done something wrong... we were so uncomfortable that we got most of our food to go and paid our expensive bill. Very rude staff, we figured that if they were closing so soon, they did not need the manager outside getting people to come in and eat.

“Good Stuff”

Stopped in for happy hour, ended up having dinner. The Ostrich Steak was cooked medium rare perfect for me. Wow, it was delicious! Will definitely be back for the deep fried Crocodile.

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Walking by we were stopped by Brian, ( from Oklahoma!) and decided why not. I had the pork rib on the grill, minor issue over the ribs and how they were cut up but Brian quickly resolved that issue and the wife had a seafood curry and we shared some fried rice.

The ribs were good, would've liked it with a bit more charcoal flavor but they were good and I needed to fix my carnivore side, this hit the spot. The wife's curry was good but again, not even close to a Thai curry in flavor. Rice, more like a Chinese fried rice, not fluffy like a Thai fried rice. Ok, we're picky, we love Thai food, but overall it wasn't bad

Thanks Brian

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Despite all the good reviews, we were pretty disappointed with this place. The seafood soup was this small bowl of cream with one prawn and one piece of squid. After asking whether the seaweed and shrimp soup had other vegetables in it, the waiter said 'yes, yes, it has vegetables'. It didn't. I didn't really feel like shrimp, so I'd ordered it without, in the hope it would be seaweed and vegetable, so I ended up eating a bowl of plain seaweed. Don't be fooled by the low prices. The dishes were so small, plain, and unsatisfying we had to go somewhere else to eat afterwards.
