The food was delicious however the service was tedious. Avoid the banquet as it’s a complete farce. They delayed bringing out meat skewers by over an hour and try fill you up on bread and dips.

Amazing menu with very tasty food. We opted for the meat platter and it was bloody brilliant. So tasty from the dips through to the skewered meat. Very good service and we couldn't eat it all. Must visit if you have a chance.

As we didn't have much time before the show the waitress suggested the $30 pre-show banquet. Plenty of delicious food. Meat and calamari tender. Bread just kept coming. Definitely go there again.

The dips and antipasto great, but the main, meat on metal sticks were not fresh, looked a bit dried out like it had been reheated or sitting around under a warmer, belly dancing entertainment lots of fun

We recently met family here in a weekend away. Lots of staff but hard to get their attention. The food was nice, a bit ‘heavy’ but good for something different.
