“Cheap tasty filling meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

Great place for lunch, the chicken is delicious and the peri peri wrap is delicious if you like spicy. My mother was looking everywhere for cooked taro and came across it here so that was a plus. Ate here twice for lunch and you can see straight into there clean kitchen. The food is cheap and quality and portions are great it's only open during the day. Also their smoothies are yummy

“AWESOME CHICKEN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Had lunch here last week. Was very busy when I went in but you can expect that when the chicken is that good. Ordered half chicken with fries and gravy... Dam GOOD... Have been here once before and ordered the quarter chicken with fries and gravy, BUT I wanted more! I will definitely be dropping in for lunch more regularly from now on

“Wouldn't recommend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We ate here on 26 August 2013 after reading good reviews and were bitterly disappointed. The service was rude and we had to wait for ages (which is fine but when I went in to check I was told to sit and wait very rudely!). We finally got our meals and one had a tiny bit of gravy while the other had none (got 1/4 chicken meal and 1/2 chicken meal). The chicken was really overcooked and dry and needed gravy. The people that shared out table ordered a little while after us and they had to send theirs back as it was undercooked - thank goodness the mum checked her children's meals before they ate it otherwise they would have been very very sick. Definitely wouldn't recommend sorry.

“Yummy chicken wrap”

Had a fantastic chicken wrap, with yummy sauce and salad. A great lunch option if you are in town, lots of seating and a great selection of food.

“Amazing Cajun Chicken, Chips and Gravy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

I've eaten alot of chicken and chips around the world and this is up there with the best anywhere. You can choose from a couple of different flavors of chicken and then add chips or salads and beautiful gravy. The staff are real friendly and the kitchen is spotless which reflects the pride they have for their business. This is tucked away on a little shopping centre but if you find it at lunchtime it could well be your best lunch while on Raro...
