Stopped in for breakfast last week whilst on holiday, and from an online recommendation I had the sashimi. I'm not usually into this for breakfast, but I wasn't disappointed. It was great. The yellow-fin tuna was great, & chilli dipping sauce was just right too.

This eating spot was recommended to us and it didn’t disappoint. The food was presented beautifully and in a timely manner. The portions were adequate with our group having prawn salads, chicken sandwich and turmeric fish. Highly recommend.

Alarm bells rang when we were advised that certain items were not available as the fryer was broken ! - we need not have worries as we had an awesome lunch of prawns and chicken with superb salads. Well recommended

I loved the quality and creativity of the cuisine. The service was professional but very familiar. The meals are in the moderate sizes for lunch and breakfast but very creative with excellent quality. It was on our list of repeat locations.
