The service was fast and the food good and reasonably priced for a tourist restaurant. But whatever you do, don't go to the toilet! i... More

Went there last week and ordered prawns with green curry, pork with peppers, 2 serves of rice and a green papaya salad and a beer and juice. Spent about $25au and we could not fault one thing, they got the balance of flavors spot on with all three dishes. Tried 2 doors north the next night and left disappointed.
