Visited on Saturday 27th August for dinner. We decided to eat in the Restaurant instead of getting a takeaway meal. The food was of a generous portion, hot & tasty. We were even allowed to take home what we could not eat, an added bonus. The Restaurant was basic and felt unwelcoming. It seemed like the locals preferred to get... More

I often drop in for the special lunch, at $7 it is the best value in town. Soup, drink, WonTon and a plate chosen from a standard selection. Friendly service from Gina. When on a budget, no better value and the food is tasty as well.
