Arrived for lunch on Monday and was met at the door by a sour faced man who has no people skills at all. The only good thing about the service is that our food arrived quickly and was ok, nothing special. I suggest this restaurant hire some waiters who know how to serve!

Visited last night. It was a warm night and we had a table on the verandah with a birds eye view of the town. Service was fast and efficient, food was plentiful and delicious and price was good value, we had two glasses of wine, and entree and two mains for a total of $60.

They opened some years ago above the Blue Diamond on the harbour. Were really good initially but went downhill in my opinion. For some bizarre reason the service staff can be rude! Gave my wife attitude about paying with a credit card so we refuse to give them another chance. They have a franchise at Shellharbour food court as well.... More

I've eaten on British Rail trains with better service than this restaurant. The proprietor is an aggresive individual who doesn't care a stuff for his customers. He was difficult and unhelpful and the food was not good. Our first two orders came out and then my wife's turned up a full hour later, after endless complaining on our part. You'll... More

I went there with my family and friends. The most terrible service I ever received was the "freezing" faces of the all waiters in the restaurant, such a middle size restaurant does not provide a child seat. On the day, their credit card machine was claimed "broken", but they did not put up any notice, only asked for cash when... More

Okay, where to start, the location and restaurant itself (ambience) is quite nice, with a big open deck area to dine on. The food is not bad, pretty average fair for a Thai Restaurant, however the wait staff are something else. It seemed to be an absolute chore to take an order and when the meals did arrive, they were... More

Rude, unpleasant staff and food average. Restaurant not that clean. Great location and could have a lot of potential but owners have got to want to change. Customer service is zero.
