Also had a hot chocolate with a piece of the chocolate cake, these were so nice, I surely was satisfied with what I had and will be coming back when I'm in Alice Springs.

I saw the menu on the internet and I was very happy to see the Surf and Turf that I have loved in the past was there. Got to the restaurant and no Surf and Turf on the menu. After I got over that disappointment I ordered the Laksa with chicken. It was very below average. The chicken tasted old and the soup itself had way too much coconut cream and thats all that could be tasted. My friends had the Wagyu beef and at $45 ea it was tough and fatty. All in all a crap night won't go back again and wouldn't recommend it.

Entrees were delivered promptly and were delicious. Although there was a wait on the mains, the excellent service and attention provided by the wait staff completley made up for it. The mains were enormous & well worth the money. Would reccomend to anyone
