Enjoyed an ice cold Sapporo beer, Singapore style noodles and fried Vietnamese spring rolls. Service is excellent with smiling and attentive waitresses. Pleasant music and an historic location.

We enjoyed relaxing along the railing in the roof top bar, and just watching the people in the park below. It is an older and quiet client group, however.
