We found this restaurant by chance and returned twice. It was so different from the many other city establishments.The service so helpful and friendly and food excellent. Value for money too. The decor is delightful, cosy yet air conditioned during a very hot spell.

Went for a solo dinner. Lovely, helpful staff with good service. The food was delicious and served hot. There was music playing in the background and it was a restful place to sit back and chill with a drink. Food was not that expensive either....More
