.... anyone would have thought they were trying to boost their ratings by being so attentive. :)

The pizza was ok - not something to write home about.

A hint for improving the flavour of the Tandoori Chicken pizza - replace the tomato sauce with Tandoorii sauce. This type of pizza is supposed to be spicy!

Dropped in to catch up with a friend and was really pleased with the quality of the food and service. This will be one of our regulars. Nice atmosphere and good variety of choices.

This is just outside the main food court and is worth going out the doors. The eggs benedict are particularly good and breakfast was terrific. Kid-friendly, small tables for couples and large tables for groups. Menu is good and service excellent.

I visited this establishment in the Kawana Waters shopping centre and to my surprise and delight they had a special running advertising schooners of draft Tiger beer for six dollars with a poster proudly standing on my table.

Being a lover of draft beer and partial to a schooner or two and having already previously sampled the Tiger brew I quickly ordered my schooner of Tiger.

To my surprise and disappointment my schooner of Tiger turned up in a very fancy glass with a large handle filled to the 300 ml line with icy cold Tiger beer. Yes the 300 ml line. Now everybody knows that a schooner is 425 mL (15 fluid ounces or three quarters of a point)

When you're a beer drinker and you drink schooners it is quickly noticeable that a 300 mL glass is no schooner.

I hastily summons the young waitress and informed her of her error. She apologised and said she was going to see the manager.

To my surprise and dismay and I would add disappointment she came back with the story from her manager that Tiger the beer company call their 300 ml glass a schooner and it is reference to the type of glass rather than the volume the glass holds.

The sign that was on the table made no reference to the fact that although calling it a schooner it fell way short of the schooner volume. They now have a disappointed and lost customer due to misrepresenting and quite possibly pennypinching.

It's a sad world when we have to start asking how much beer you are going to get when you order a schooner.

I left the establishment disappointed underwhelmed and somewhat still thirsty, vowing not to return.
