Cozy and nice atmosphere. The waitress is helpful to provide us some recommendation. We four people got a 2 shanks, Red Thai curry and a garlic bread! It was quite enough, tasty and cozy!

Ordered the bacon and eggs, asked for poached eggs - they said the chef doesn't do poaching. Then said he did after I asked if they could check, then they came out with a hair on it. Needless to say, I will not be returning.

Visited this place for an evening meal. Staff very friendly. In addition to usual menu they also had a value menu where dishes were all $15 each. We ordered off this menu and food was excellent, large portions and good value.
