Family of four with two kids loved the mix and match of proteins on the grill simply prepared and choice of sauces from sweet to spicy. Chef was at Intrawest/Embarc previously and knows his stuff. Very friendly and welcoming. Delicious salads.

We've eaten here twice, since the new owners took over. The first time, they did inform us about the change, but we stayed, and had the Pasta with Shrimp, and the Supreme Shrimp.

Israel is an accomplished chef who cooks up terrific food from Mexican to Thai to European cuisine. The Thai is HOT! so be careful if you don't like hot spicy food.

The menu was much more simplified than before. But and this is a big but - they have have an outdoor grill for their dishes and this is a big plus and kind of rare for restaurants in the area.

We had a perfectly fine meal here of wings and ribs, but we came for Thai! Unfortunately we were informed the original owner has moved his business elsewhere. To their credit, they told us this before, and their food was solid- good rib platter and wings! If that's what you're in the mood for, give it a try!

Israel's food is excellent, especially the Thai salad and the curries. He is open for dinner until 10 pm. They will season your choices to the level of spice you desire.

Good food, good people, good location. Various styles of food, but Thai is a favourite. Israel looks after his guests.
