We had out last meal in Tonga here - lobster mornay and fresh coconut. A beautiful restaurant containing many beautiful local woodworks with an open verandah facing the water across the busy main road. Friendly and helpful staff and a lovely meal.

I had a sashimi platter. It served with soy source and washabi. Taste was nice. But I waited long time. Because there were some many gruops. and service speed is not fast. But food was really nice. I hope to visit other time.

Great service, beautiful view and nice modern look. Probably the only real let down was the food, pretty average but not too bad.
