We enjoyed the chicken. It was delicious. The 4 of us had 1 chicken and 2 other veg dishes and was more than enough. Service was just so so.

Main purpose is to eat the chicken. Quiet, about 4 to 5 tables as it's a weekday. BBQ chicken is tasty, we also order 3 type of vegetables dishes (very fresh). Great for family.

Large crowded eatery with one specialty dish - Tender succulent roast chicken served with mushroom garlic onions side. Lots of green vegetables of different types and fresh steamed prawns that were good too. Prices are very reasonable.

Was so unexpectedly delicious. Take only half a chicken if you travel two and try their fresh and tasty baby squids. Fried cabbage is a must as well.
