Great restaurant to eat at. You don't have to book in. The Staff are friendly and the meals are a very good price. Worth a visit.

We had one night in Lake Tepako and I really fancied Chinese. My husband was against it because he didn't like the look of the restaurant but agreed in the end. The actual restaurant is huge and looks more like a conference facility. The waiter...More
