    • Thank you for an amazing night. And hosting the most important night my wedding night. The food was amazing the service too. I couldnt have asked for a better venue. I recommend it to anyone for birthdays, engagement parties, weddings, christmas parties, a romantic night out for 2, a girls night out or just a nice outing for lunch. Thanks again to everyone who works there

    • Took a drive down to the Gong with the inlaws and came across this little gem! Sitting on the balcony overlooking the mall with a lovely summer breeze keeping us cool - what more could you ask for!?! The owners were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating of our young children; the staff were attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. We'll be back for sure.
