There's live music in one corner, tables full of happy people scattered around, fires burning in barrels, and the lovely authentic Thai food cooked by Thai Chefs using local fresh Kangaroo Island produce.

Step into a fairytale, where you dine beneath the boughs and embraced by the leaves of an ancient fig tree planted by the early settlers.
Over many years, the gnarled branches have touched the ground to grow again, forming enchanting rooms with ceilings of swaying leaves and dappled light.
This unique dining experience is seasonal from December to April, before the leaves start to fall.
Open for lunch, Wednesday to Sunday between December 1 and April 30.
