Really like this place, seemed really authentic and clearly make an effort with the food and service. I had the f*ckin' hot burger, the waiter recommended the f*ckin' hot sauce on the side because of how hot it was, which was a good recommendation cos'...More

Visited here last month with my son for a quick bite. We were not disappointed. The good was delish....I recommend the pulled pork bap. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We left satisfied and would go again.
