My husband and I shared the Alice Springs Chicken with Aussie Fries. We also added a side of steamed vegetables which were very good. Our server was very efficient. We would like to visit again.

Typical chain restaurant. Seen one seen all with the service to go with it. It was crowded and understaffed with a large tour group there taking away from the main diners. Slow service food and could not get our check.
