Mae Waad is licenced but also one of the few byo restaurants with a reasonable corkage of $4.50. The lads came with a bottle of red which we quickly polished off and then purchased a bottle of Tassie Pinot from their wine list for just $35.
The prices are really reasonable and flavours so delightful This Girl hopes that the current handful of diners each night increase to ensure this little restaurant stays open.
