Flying Burito allows customers to build their entre to suit their individual taste. Having tried about everything on the menu I can vouch for quality ingredients, fair prices and friendly service.

Authentic food in a lovely setting to be found here. Prices are good and the hospitality is great. The Curry Goat is a must! Ask the owner to try his own hot sauce, beware... it'll blow your face clean off.
