Not a nice experience. We waited 20 minutes before a waiter came with the menu. Waited another 15 minutes before he came back for the drinks order and waited another 20 minutes for our drinks. We finished our drinks, paid the bill and left. Terrible service. Will not go there again.

What an unpleasant experience. We ordered drinks and had to wait nearly 30 minutes for the drinks to come.

Ribs and wings was a sad attempt at one of SA's favorite foods. The outside area looks rundown and in need of some TLC. Service not too bad. Staff friendly and helpful

The food is the worst in Secunda. They can't even make a lettuce here. Forget about service it's a mystery and at large. If you need a drink it's a place to go. If you need to smoke other peoples smoke pull in.

Bad service right through the night. The menu is standard and there is nothing that sets it apart from the generic theme of these restaurants

Food is good here, very generous helpings. The portion of mushrooms as a starter would have fed 2. I had a pizza for main course and it was decent. Not the best then again it's not a pizza joint. I'd eat here again and go for a meat dish as The steaks / meat dishes I saw coming out looked... More

My daughter in law reserved 12 seats for 12:00 on 10 May 2015 to celebrate Mother's Day. What should have been a happy celebration turned out to be a nightmare. We were seated outside and due to the change in weather conditions, moved to the inside of the restaurant, still appreciated but ended up in the smokers section! Waited more... More
