Although this is a chain restaurant, we had an excellent meal as a family. The generous portions of kingklip was perfectly grilled. Probably better than we had at many highly recommended restaurants. The sushi was fresh and deliciously prepared, although the individual portions seems to get smaller than usual. Service was acceptable. Overall a good night out.

This 'fast food" joint is fun, festive and best of all - delicious! The prawns and mussels served with a lemony sauce in a hot skillet is the stuff dreams are made up. Perfect place for fabulous, casual fare at the beach.
