My wife and I had lunch here today while in Burnside. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The food was reasonably priced and pretty good. My goulash was so/so, but the sweet and sour meatballs my wife had were exceptional. Would recommend.

The sandwiches from here are fantastic and really makes a change from the processed chain restaurant food that is on offer otherwise in Burnside. Their club sandwich is one of the best I've ever had and the samosas are fantastic too. Well worth checking out...More
