I have been a avid supporter for many years. Just had the king prawn special (R99) - it is the best prawns in SA, and at an unbeatable price. What more can you ask for.

Food was good but the service was VERY BAD. Asked for cheese; got chilli. The waiter was impatient, rude, served us with a scowl on his face as if we were a mere irritation to him. That spoiled our dinner for me and my family....More

Two of us shared a Kilo of prawns. So often, especially when there is a special, the prawns are smaller and of a lower quality. These prawns were superb. The service was good and the Manager/owner was always visible. A very happy evening- highly recommended!

I was there for a business lunch and really enjoyed the good service and food. It was also very easy to find a good spot to communicate properly.
