Great place to stop and eat after a day at the Bonsai Pipeline. Good food. Prawns still have heads and tails though so if your not a fan of that then this isn’t the place for you. Lines are usually long here.

We had heard about the shrimp trucks and word was that Romy’s is the best. We went for lunch on a Monday, the line was not long but we were still informed that the wait for the #1 meal, Garlic Shrimp was 40minutes. The girl...More

I came here for the famous garlic and butter shrimp and was disappointed. The shrimps were either over cooked or from a frozen bag - they were chewy and flowery. The garlic and butter flavoring is removed when you have peeled the shell. It would...More
