I've been here several times when I've been in Palmerston North. Delicious food, beautifully presented, reasonable price. Menu doesn't change a lot, but one of the menu items is "Ask Ken to cook something you have in idea about".

Ken in the kitchen= tasty, flavor filled dinner. Dishes are large hot and delicious. Special fav's are available on request from previous menus. Cosy room for dining in, takeaways for those in a hurry. Book on weekends or you'll miss out! Our fav place.

A great little restaurant. A small menu, but everything on it looks delicious. I had the beef and spicy black bean. Can honestly say it was probably the best I've ever eaten. The only downside was that the service was a little slow - there...More
