We were there for lunch...I would characterise the menu selection as original and potential for making some delicious food. But, both the so-called mini-pizza and the tacos were deep-fried, making the "bread" crispy allright, but also dripping of oil and adding that KFC-like oily feeling to the whole food. When mentioning the unpleasant cooking method, we were told that "that's... More

Although I much prefer Kasa sushi a few blocks away, the sushi was surprisingly good. I will never go back as I was appalled by the $20 for a glass of Phantom. This wine has been one of my everyday go-to wines for about 6 years and it costs about $18/bottle at the local wine shop. a 500% mark-up is... More

Sunday evening it was becoming difficult to find somewhere open to eat while on a touring holiday. It was quiet when I arrived, quite early, but more diners arrived during my visit and by the time I left it was quite busy. Plenty of choice in terms of food and also price point. I opted for a green curry with... More

A lot of care and enthusiasm is put into this restaurant. From the flowers on the table to the buoyant attitude of the server, the passion radiated. It was fun to support this local joint and their creative endeavor.

Delicious Food - husband and I agreed that the Painter's Palate Burger is the best we've had in the area (Shakespeare's Pub is our second favorite). The Thiacos were also very good. We also got a Sexy Man sushi roll to go; even our toddler liked it. I also liked the improvements to the decor and to the outside dining... More

a creative combination of Thai and French cuisine. The decor and interior need a little work but the food is delicious. For the pizza fan, try the spicy basil pizza - it's not spicy like it sounds - it includes ground pork, cheese, and a fried egg on top! We also tried the Painters Palate Burger (which is wrapped in... More

I live by here and decided to walk over since we felt like being outside after work. I wondered what it was all about and did not even know what type of food it was. There were no other customers so I was sceptical at first. We ordered 3 different sushi rolls and the duck rolls which are a spring... More
