We went to this place as it was very close to where were staying.
It is open till 11:30 pm . They do not server food up late.
The interior gives a Camp type feel with all the lights and wooden seats... a bus converted for sitting.
It does has some kinda pull to it.. many young tourist and locals turn up to this place .. its over crowed on the week ends...
In all a good place to chill (i mean really chill :D it gets cold as the night sets in .. so do not forget to carry your jackets) :)
Thank you guys... We had fun while our visit there :)

You've got to admire the spirit of operators whose premises were destroyed but who pick up the pieces and start afresh. Even though in this case the restaurant is a house bus and the diners are seated under shade sails.

It was funky, jolly and friendly and while maybe not the best ever hamburgers, they were tasty, well priced and served with a smile. I'd highly recommend a visit here, more so on a warm, dry evening though.
