Took my sister and husband there for our daughters birthday. As usual the food was great. Both my sister and husband have limited mobility and use walkers and the staff made it real easy for them

Overall the food was great and it was a positive experience. It would have been good if our waitress would have checked on us at some point as we would have purchased alot more drinks if so. Our group of 6 purchased one of the set menu options. Mains were great but with the appetizers, it would have been great if there were 1 of everything for each of us as opposed to someone missing out on each item.

Food and atmosphere were great. There were two staffs on - one was very friendly the other one not so much. A bit of wait for staff as it was a busy day. Food was delicious and always love the location.

Above average Asian-fusion restaurant. No surprises here, another somewhat cookie-cutter "Asian Garden Hospitality Group" restaurant. The setting is nice, provided you're not seated with your back to the windows that look out onto the ocean, and that's a reason to visit at least once. The food is quite decent and flavourful, even if it leans quite heavily into lower value ingredients. It's extremely disappointing they are claiming their food will help prevent diseases including cancer (quote “Eating SpiritHouse style will enhance the body with appropriate nutrients, energy, minerals, vitamins and dietary fibre for preventing coronary heart disease, dyslipidaemia, strokes, obesity, diabetes and some cancers,” says Dr. Luecha Wanarantan.), but I think most diners are intelligent enough to realise their oil-drenched or coconut cream cooked salt heavy meal is very much an occasional treat food.

Overall a good experience but it was somewhat dulled by after spending $450.00 on food and drinks asked to pay an extra $9.00 to use visa facility.

Great Food and good value. Service could have been better did not get asked about deserts or coffee after the main meal. When paying tried to get charged corkage for unopened bottles of wine, staff member a little bit officious. Would not stop me from going back though.

Not as good a service as in previous visits, but once we found waitress that we could understand no problems. All our meals came out separately which was a bit disconserting as we had to ask for the last meal. I understand it was busy, but we could have easily have gone another couple of drinks rounds! Still a favourite local eatery and have no problem introducing and recommending out of towners. Loverly warm surroundings, and great view- spotted an orca in th surf!
