An interesting place on the main King Street drag. BYO available. Had a decent portion of fish and chips, but wish you could also get a crumbed or even grilled version, rather than battered. The tartare sauce was the best I've had in Australia to...More

Relaxed atmosphere , group seating or counter looking out to the street. Good variety of menu items, you have time to choose without pressure as you order and pay at the counter. 3 for $15 tacos, all delicious and fresh.
