The restaurant offers an à la carte menu that changes daily. Lunch is served from noon to 2 pm; dinner is served starting at 7 pm, with the last order taken at 9:30.

Some of the interesting entrées served here include chicken in June plum sauce; grilled fish with spicy mango-shrimp sauce; and spiced fish with tamarind and coconut sauce.
