Enjoyed eating here, the service was good and they were very friendly. Was disappointed in wait time for the meal as it seemed quiet at the time. Would go again, food was good!

the beers are ok with a fair price. the food is as good (or bad) as many other western restaurants in town, i would suggest unless you are really starving for Western food... just go for a local Chinese stuff and get your dinner.
