A crazy good name that's worth checking out. A varied menu with selections like "yobbo", "Mexican bum burner" and "meat" pizza. Or for something truly Australian you can try the "Coat of Arms", which contains roo and emu. I devoured a collection of three curries with basmati rice, poppadom and raita. They were thick, tender and perfectly cooked and wouldn't feel out of place served from a Bombay street stall. Staff are friendly and attentive, so no issues with the service, and answered all of our many inquiries. Free wifi is also on offer and great for when you're travelling.


Been travelling around gippsland for the past week, the fat seagull was the best meal I've had in 5 days, well done guys




We eat out quite a lot. This was one of the best meals we've had. Fantastic prices too.
