    It was Mother’s Day so it was super busy. Service was efficient, food was very good. It’s a little bit pricey but I think worth it. The staff were really cool, calm and really friendly how stressful it must have been for them.

    Have been here a few times for breakfast so decided to try lunch with a friend. They were quite busy for lunch as they had a large table of ladies for a party, however staff were friendly and attentive. I ordered the nasi goreng however was a bit disappointed, it seemed like it was just seasoned rice with a few prawns and a piece of chicken. There was no vegies or other ingredients in the rice. I ended up mixing in the watercress garnish to add more variety. I ended up ordering fries after as i was still hungry. It's a lovely place and breakfast is always lovely, however not a fan of the nasi goreng. For $30 I would expect more then just rice prawn and chicken.

    First time there for breakfast and we were looking for something different to just eggs benny or bacon & eggs My wife had the rancheros pulled pork and the spice level and flavor suited her tastes perfectly, maybe a bit hot for some. I tried the chili spanner crab omelet, it had a good spice level for the average taste. I finely chopped my and my wife's garnish chilies and it made it perfect for me. The coffee just beat the meal which was again how we like it. I was full by the time we left at 8.45, essential to book We will be back, well done to the staff and management !

    we booked an outdoor table & were put in the sun with no shade, so were asked to be moved inside (why book?!?). had a surly, skinny black haired waitress who literally looks at the floor when walking through the room so nobody can grab her attention. she stopped just short of throwing our coffees at us. when i asked for sugar she literally did slam down the sachets on the table. the blonde girl & (philippino?) young women serving were really lovely though. only time the surly one smiled was when we were getting up to pay: maybe she thought a tip coming? this place has great food but could do better in the staff training: maybe lessons in smiling & eye contact for the surly slammer.
