A late lunch, and what a pleasure. The waiting staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was delicious. I am sure we overstayed our welcome, but no-one put any pressure on us to leave. I have no hesitation in recommending Joita's!

Joita's food is consistent and has been the best prawns and chicken I've had. Good value for money with generous portions. Excellent service. I have been there 3 times this year already. Be sure to book in advance!
