This would have to be one of our favourite places to dine in Darwin, it just never disappoints. The staff are amazing, friendly and prompt no matter how busy they get and they do get busy! The outside facade hides one of Darwin’s real gems....More

This restaurant has lots of character and it caters to large groups. The belly dancers are georgeous and friendly and they definitely add to the atmosphere. Have been a number of times and it never disappoints.
