Local friends who live in Sydney, brought us here. Otherwise, we would not have known about this place. They had amazing food and the service was fast. I love spicy food and they accommodated with birds eye chilies' for my meal.

Had such an amazing birthday party here! The staff and the food was awesome. We had a number of people at the party with allergies and we needed to arrange a very specific menu.
