Great catch up with friends at this place. Lots of choices especially for one of the fussy sometimes vegetarian friends. Perfect food for sharing in a big space which was not busy on a Sunday for lunch. There were a couple of mistakes with the order - feta left off one meal and entree forgotten about which was surprising due to them not being busy but forgotten entree rectified and everything we got was yum - it all comes out together which we didn't realise or may have ordered differently. We also shared a couple of delicious frozen yoghurt sundaes for dessert which were great. All of us agreed wed go back.

Although the hospitality of the staff is not so very good(Nobody was smiling seeing the customers so honestly we joked that they may have all had a fight before the customers arrived), the spinach cigar tube made with rice papers were good. Unique and funky place to dine during weekends. The squid was too salty but the Octopus was cooked uniquely.

Found the correct entrance door thanks to the footpath instruction, and were warmly welcomed. The interior is more gastro warehouse than gastro pub and food is ordered and paid for at the counter then a buzzer supplied which alerts you when you should pick up your meals. We both had lamb, which was superb - tender and succulent. The pumpkin plate was also outstanding, with seeds, hummous etc. The chipotle dip in one of the vege plates was extremely moreish. The broccoli plate and the chips were ok but the spinach/silverbeet was a bit old and tough and the chips varied in size and colour. The food was plentiful and next time we would probably go with the pumpkin but leave out the chips.

My only issue was that the beautiful crispy batter on the fish for the Souvlaki went very soggy very quick so wasn't so enjoyable half way thru.

Portions. You will not be left hungry. The food is delicious. Lamb rotisserie was so tender. The only regret I had was I ordered too much food so I couldn't eat desserts. The chop salad was also very tasty despite being extremely good for you contents wise. Also because you are an earlier customer, you pretty much escape the noise when it is busy which for me is a huge plus to eat in relative quiet.
