You have to order at the counter but they do bring the food to your table.

There was only one item on the dessert menu and it was very small.

It was very busy. And the staff kept up and were smiling and helpful. Drinks are a little expensive, but the food was excellent value for money

Looking for a venue for a group of 22 people (seniors) for a December get together - so on checking the menu on line I found the SPECIALS - two for one deals. I decided to try this out with my wife -- the Curry Night -- and found it not a good standard at all. (not for the price anyhow) Presentation was ok but the meal itself was disappointing -- the Rendang Curry was ordinary to say the least and the Sri Lankan -- which I have had there numerous times previously was not up to a decent standard. Being a Cairns native for 70 years - I love the venue - but the food has always been a distraction. This fact was bought up in our group meeting a few weeks ago when I nominated Mondo's for our end of year get together. A number of the group complained about the quality of the food --- and for that matter - the menu itself. I was still able to talk them into having our function at Mondos - however after last night I feel I cannot commit to this venue either. Sorry to have to advise this but I do feel it is warranted. Will I be back ? Yes, but not for the food. Ambience ? Can't beat it.

Great view, very nice staff and great food. Nitpicking alert: I'm the douchebag who ordered a Ricard and note for the future: put water in it!

Booked and confirmed online -however they didn't have my booking when I arrived. Ran out of lemons, mint and limes the night before and no one bought extra for the days traiding so cocktail selection was reduced as they didn't have the ingredients. $1 oysters were lovely and fresh (no lemons though)
