This is one of my faves in Darwin. There are not that many good eateries in this town. This place delivers everytime. Good solid food and service. Back over and over because it is consistently good.

The Cyclone Café doesn’t look like much from the outside, possibly a place you would walk right by inside you will find good service, a great menu and the food is excellent.
