John's thick crust meat lovers pizza was one of the best we have eaten anywhere in S.A. The room was clean and decorated with local art works.

There is very little options here so on our first night we got lasagne and it was not very good at all. We read the reviews again and most people seemed very impressed with the pizzas so on our 2nd night we decided we'd have some pizza. Honestly the dough felt like it was frozen and in my opinion it...

We had Hiroshima and burgers the first night and although delicious, we envied everyone else who had pizza, so we had to go back the next night! The pizzas were wonderful!

Very extensive menu. They were very busy, but still managed to get food on our table quite quickly. Restaurant very clean.... More

Second time I have been here within a short space of time. The selection of food on offer is great, tastes great and at a fair price. Went eat in the first time and take away the second. Can be busy

Visited with a group of 13 on our way to Uluru (including 7 kids). Food amazing - all agreed amongst the best pizza we had ever had. Loads of interesting toppings, great flavour balance & all around delicious. Service great too. So good we stopped at Coober Pedy on our way home so we could visit again.

The fact that this is the only pizza place in hundreds of kilometers may make these pizzas more palatable. However, they are just edible, not far from a Domino's Pizza level, but extremely overpriced. The staff was fine. Some of the waitresses were very nice, while others seemed to be forced to be there. It is some kind of a... More
