We ate here two nights in a row last month and enjoyed it immensely both times. I guess the stand out meal was the fish in coconut cream but everything we tried was good. It has a great atmosphere and the staff are friendly.

Service and cuisine are unformal and you just feel like home... Tasty and generous plates such as fidjian curry and sweet/sour chicken. Great chat with the owner, a must do in Levuka!

A small rather dark place with a tiny kitchen. But they can produce some amazing food. The fish in coconut cream was incredible. Everyone is very friendly and the prices are the lowest I have encountered in Fiji. A true gem!
