Was really surprised here. We had some time to kill while Waiting on our flight. We had no idea of What there was to offer in the area so just walked upon this place knowing nothing. Walking in I started wondering if the place was even kid friendly.. But all turned out to be good. The waiter (can't remember his... More

Sad to see that this place has poor reviews. We all loved it! The person who helped us in the store/restaurant was very nice & friendly. Keep in mind that it's not your "average" restaurant atmosphere. It is a store/restaurant/hookah bar....& you are on vacation! We were staying in a vacation rental so, we were doing some of our own... More

Had the chicken kabobs-great flavor! The place might not look the greatest, but loved the food! Owner hooked us up with his buddy to get a deal on a golf cart rental.

If you can get past the looks of the building and the hookahs, the food was really good. Had the chicken kabob with excellent coconut rice and really good slaw. Husband had lamb kabob, and sister had beef kabob. One of the best meals we had on the island!

I’m not a fan. So said my son on leaving the restaurant. The food was not bad but not great, either. Just kind of bland. The prices were no better than average, and the service was glacially slow. No reason to avoid it, but no reason to beat a path to its door, either. You can get more bang for... More

The food we got was okay if a bit pricey. It was the owners repeated attempts to sell me something to "smoke" that I found disturbing. We will never be back.

We waited for over an hour for chicken and I personally never received my meal. I was so excited to eat their "authentic" food. We had to leave to catch our flight. After waiting FOREVER, they tried to tell us we bought more drinks they we did and ordered more appetizers than we did. They never came to clean the... More

We stopped because the place looks really interesting and we thought we could grab kabobs and a drink and be on our way. Turns out the kabobs were really expensive ($25 Belize) and though the staff were almost falling over themselves to wait on us (we were the only people there) it took forever to get a kabob. The kabob... More

Don't go. The food is awful and the service is non existent. There are cheap beach stands that put this place to shame. Probably microwave everything. Noisy, hot, dirty with terrible service.
