We called in early evening and we're given a real friendly welcome! Both our burgers were awesome and the fries to die for after so much Asian food. Thanks guys, will hopefully see you again before the weeks out.

Great deal - burger with fries and a beer 25RM or instead of beer choose soft drink for 23RM. Burger was tasty and fries were crunchy! Staff also super lovely. Overall very pleasant meal and reasonably priced.

They feed you quickly and it's a good burger. The beers are cheap and quick to be served. The staff look like they are having fun all the time. Good for them....it's how life should be.
