4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I ate a Uncle Binos about five times and was never disappointed with the tuna. Try it with the island fries.

“Great roadside stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Had a terrific dinner here, when we instinctively pulled off the road to check it out. Casual place with a serious cook, and nicely cooked fish with salad and salsa. Friendly place. Very informal and casual, and fun to talk to others discovering the place.

“Good value, simple fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

These guys are improving; simple food, good fish in a simple outdoor covered setting by the road...

Could perhaps do with sauce being optional, but overall good value for money and the shop has good bananas!

“Island fries 4 eva!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We ate at Uncle Binos a few times and the family there are very pleasant. The food is excellent - think of it as takeaways plus! They do whole meals, including nice salads, and we really enjoyed their Island fries (deep fried taro and breadfruit). You can eat there under their verandah and watch the world go by or take the food away. Excellent!

“Island fries.........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Such great Island Fries. We loved them. The others had chicken burgers (they were a touch disappointed they were frozen patties) and I had grilled chicken with the salad and Island Fries (soooo good). The sun-dried tomato dressing was excellent (low fat I'm sure). A very simple place with plastic chairs and tables looking across to the sports field and then out on to the lagoon.
