Great place, great food, we had tuna and black chicken Prices excellent no more expensive than the "cheap" places and tax etc included in the price so no surprises when you get the bill.

Friday lunchtime and a lot of places are shut. This wasn't, nice setting, limited menu of wraps but you can have rice instead. Food was good and the potato wedges were crispy and lovely. Would have preferred a slightly larger portion but other than that for the price this was good value.

Good food, nice atmosphere and attentive service. The red snapper and chicken masala were very tasty. A little expensive for lunch but not unexpected in such a touristy area.

the building itself is stunning art deco as name implies food was so so but better value than a minute by tuk tuk. Had calamari and chips it was tasty but the fish a little chewy ok but wouldn't be desperate to return

I ordered scallops, what arrived the smallest rubberest scallops to ever grace a restaurant plate and they wanted US$26 for them I sent them back. My wife ordered turmeric chicken, what arrived was really just chicken and chips. The chicken was not cooked through we send back and asked for the bill. I paid $70 for a bottle of wine... More
