Good morning! After reading some very good reviews we are looking forward to trying your delicious food. What is the average price for a curry in $bbd and do you have children's menus? Kind regards

Answer
Response from Patricia A | Property representative |
Hello, our curries vary in price from lunch to dinner so on average they can run $30 bbds. We do not have a separate children's menu but we make meals specially for children.

Flying in next Monday 17, so maybe won't arrive into Speitstown until about 9pm. Will that be too late for your curry menus? What time do you stop serving dinner in the evenings?
