We popped in for a quick meal, but had to have some of the duck spring rolls followed by Stir Fried Prawns, and a Red Curry and Snapper. Excellent, the curry had a nice little bite. Recommend a return visit.

We had a group of 20 and was given a table with a great water view. We had a pre-arranged banquet menu. The entree combination was average but two of mains (crispy pork salad and prawns) were excellent. The service was excellent.

This is a local restaurant where you always run into people you know. Great owners. Friendly staff. Located right on the waterfront, and I mean 'right on the water'. Watch the fishermen and boats while you eat. The wharf design allows people to walk past...More

Visited for the fourth time, again with friends. Service is friendly and relaxed, but efficient. The open kitchen provides some interesting sights and sounds but is not too intrusive. This licensed restaurant allows you to bring your own wine, but has a small wine selection...More

Yes, Bistro Jinja is open at 5pm. Food is an Asian-Western fusion. You can book (and I recommend you doing so on popular days). Enjoy!
