We had dinner here mid-week so the restaurant was very quiet. The food was delicious, the service great and we all enjoyed exploring the restaurant. I definitely recommend this restaurant for an interesting dining option.

Saw coconut crabs, got to hold a snake, the cultural show great, they added some magic and talked about the old ways. The tree house was good to look around and the beer and fizzy was nice a cold.
