Wide variety of types of food here – almost like an international restaurant. Husband had Nasi Goreng (Indonesian) and I had Pad Thai with chicken (Thai). Franz Josef was not busy at all - no tour busses and restaurant was not busy.

Fusion of Indonesian, Chinese, Indian and whatever the food is clever. Good chicken PadThai, Nasi Goreng with peanut satay. They have the best meat or veggie pies I have ever experienced. Local brews. Thet do big take out business.
