“Could do better”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

The dishes on the menu sound good but could be better. The lamb shank would be better if cooked longer - was quite fatty and sinewy and the risotto was glug. The service however was very good and staff are personable.

“Regretted dining here”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Very sorry we dined here. Food was very average. Service just ok. Laksa was terrible - thick and gluggy. Fish in the 'fresh' fish n' chips dish looked like it came from a frozen fish packet and kids mal of chicken tenderloins looked like chicken nuggets. As you would expect it was a hot night in PD and fans were turned off because one diner was cold. After sweltering through dinner I asked for the fans to be turned back on, which they were after the waitress said 'oh, the other diner who was cold left about 30 mins ago.' Not recommended.
