Saw other aboriginal dancers in Uluru who were much better. The food was disappointing and the whole show a bit "silly". They did do group participation which some people love.

IT WAS a great little place, but no longer exists. The artwork on the floor however done by Nathan Mundraby of Yarrabah and another fellow (sorry I forget his name) of TI decent is still on the floor.

Enjoyed all the shows that we're going on and all the interesting stories that were told by the aboriginals. Shown how to throw a boomerang and how to get music from the digeredoo. Had some food in the restaurant, not up to much, but passable. An enjoyable day.

Very very early open. Staff awake and happy. Really interesting place to visit. Sit outside nice big solid timber tables facing mall full of trees. Fresh and fun menu food cooked and presented well. Good coffee. Nice little touch of a glass of water and complimentary paper as soon as I sat down.

we have had a few birthday lunches, at cultural place and they have all been tatsye and fresh meals. The lunch specials are always good, and the so is the service, fast and friendly. They also have a function room out the back, which I have heard is good to use for large events!

The food is fantastic here and it is not expensive, you could take the whole family for a meal. I love the imagination of the menu and they are not afraid of trying new things. The staff are lovely and nothing appears to be too much trouble for them. I have been here many times and will be returning again.
