I enjoyed the food but not the atmosphere. It felt that you were on a production line with the only goal is to get you fed and out the door asap. Very disappointing when the food was good. I would not go here again.

Our friends got together after a brief wedding at Treasure Building. It was a good start and shortly after waitress kept forgetting the drinks and followed by the chef also skipped head count and did not cook enough food. Could have been a lot better!
