Soft shell crab, scallops, duck, beef and steamed veggies - all great in this large and very popular restaurant at the Mullumbimby bowling club. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, if very young, waiting staff. And a very reasonable price (around $100 for 4 with a bottle of wine, a beer and a generous and well-deserved tip).

After hearing various positive comments in recent months, I saved up for when my friend form Sydney was visiting the area. We ordered a shared mixed entree plate which was generous with calamari rings alongside the sweet potato filled curry puffs, chicken satay and spring rolls. I ordered the Pad Prik Sod with pork and found the dish full of fresh flavours. For my friend's dish the staff belatedly explained that they'd out of egg noodles, so fat rice noodes were requested instead. Maybe the order went to the end of the queue after that as there seemed an inordinate delay. I actually think they forgot we'd already had the entree when another was rerouted after leaving the kitchen. When it arrived, the Gang Dang red curry was not very hot for a medium heat request, and resembled a Masuman without the potato. The chef's signature dish of a whole Snapper cooked with a topping of dry curry sauce and crispy basil seemed to be popular, if the number coming out of the kitchen was an indicator. Maybe we should have selected that one - but we were happily satisfied with the two main dishes. Only 4 more curries and 6 wok dishes to try beside the 3 signature dishes, 5 salads, 2 soups, laksa, 5 rice & noodle dishes... Another evening after the school holiday crowd has gone home perhaps!

It may be just teething troubles but the move to the bowling club doesn't look good. The food is just as good but the venue is awful. It's like eating in a noisy departure hall of some crap airport. Horrible experience. Screaming kids running riot in a noisy room with no atmosphere and no intimate spaces. I just don't see this working. The hard-working serving staff were down to only two when we were there so service was really poor. We waited ten minutes to get out because there was no-one take take our money!
The golf club had a lovely balcony for summer evenings. The Bowling club looks out onto - a bowling green. Boring. We won't be enduring this again.

We eat here at least once a month - sometimes even more. The food is always excellent , the service is friendly and the value for money is unsurpassed. You cannot go wrong eating here. The Beef Mussaman Curry is melt in your mouth and packed full of flavour , but it seems unfair to single out just one dish when all are delicious.

So grateful we live so close to this little gem
