I was warned not to expect too much from Helm, so I was glad to have walked in without high expectations.
It's a pretty basic bar with average decor - it looks like pretty worn and tired. The ladies toilets smelt pretty bad, there was no soap, no paper towels and no working hand dryer.
We ordered a kilo of prawns, and while the prawns were fresh and tasty, there was less than half a kilo in the small bowl they served it in.
The staff are polite and friendly and food (other than the prawns) were served quite quickly. We only ordered chips and wedges as we were heading out to dinner after our drinks. Beer was super cheap, something like $13 for a jug.
I had a good night because of the company I was with, and it is a good spot for some drinks before/after a meal because of its location in Cockle Bay Wharf.
