Food is homemade and fantastic. Thai wrap was flavourful, and the Gluten grilled veggie wrap was tasty. Service was quick considering it was packed. Would visit again.

This is my first review on Trip Advisor but felt this potential gem of a restaurant needed a wake up call before it sinks too low to recover. Firstly, the food is good. Real good - simple, honest, cooked to order with fresh, local ingredients,...More
