The garlic shrimp were delicious....but a MESS to eat without a sink nearby. We had to make do with "washing" our garlic & buttery fingers with a bottle of water. We came late in the day and the line wasn't too long. Glad we experienced...More

Food truck. The most delicious garlic prawns/shrimp you've ever had. Worth the wait. People coming and going so I suggest waiting in line then once you've ordered, one of you wait for the order, the other finds a seat. No point finding a seat before...More
