  • If I could give zero out of 5 for service, I would. My friend and I had lunch there on a very quiet Saturday. There were only 2 other tables, one of which was being used by the owner/manager and his friends and family. The waitress basically forgot we were there, didn't bother to ask if we wanted more drinks at any point or check if we were okay. The food took over an hour and when it did come they had forgotten my food. My friend had finished her meal by the time my meal arrived. The food was average at best. I waitressed all through high school and university, I know it's a terrible job, so I always have sympathy for bad waiters or those not coping on a busy night but between the indifference of the waitress, the slackness of the owner/manager and the averageness of the food, I would never return to this establishment.

  • I had the Thai Chicken Curry - delicious. My wife loved her Octo-Burger. Only the kids were disappointed, as the kiddies menu is very limited and they did not particularly enjoy their chicken skewers with peanut sauce. Very nice vibe and location.
