    Great food and good service. A nice place and accommodating to us with our baby. It's the second time we've been there and we are definitely going back.

    Great food and friendly staff. Generous servings, did not walk out hungry! Would visit again even if it wasn't discounted. Loved the haloumi chips

    The food is tasty and plentiful and the service was good. We had the $48 pp banquet which is quite expensive but we had the 50% off food from The Fork which made it much more reasonable.

    Food was good but needed garlic sauce or other sauces with the platter. Table for 4 should be served between each couple not between the 4 people. Overall a good night out with plenty of food.

    Whilst the banquet is filling, the price for what you get can be a little on the expensive side. Have been to restaurant previously and the al a carte is much better value. Would recommend restaurant for food with some difference being mainly middle eastern.

    Great service and food. Set menu was very generous. My friends and i were not fond of the barramundi , it smelled like it's been thawed for a too long. Otherwise the food was fantastic and will definitely visit again.

    Enjoyed it until we found two black hairs in our food - one in the vegetable stew and one in the salad. A complete turn off - we won’t be back.
