We ended up in this restaurant for breakfast because it looked nice and "western" from the outside, and we were craving for a western breakfast. Bad decision... the menu is very limited. we asked for a sandwich, some fresh fruits and pancakes. It took for ever to be served (not because the place was crowed), the food was not tasty... More

Way below expectation. Visited for the first time, took way longer than needed from taking order to getting the bill, food was not great, there were houseflies which is not acceptable for an indoor cafe/restaurant.

The aircon did not seem to work as it was rather stuffy in there. The Asian cuisine was not as good as those offered at the harbor and Boss Cafe though more expensive.

I think the menu is just for show. The staff feel free to substitute for something which is not available or maybe it was just us. Food is good though and the Aircon very welcome especially as location is in the centre of the city.

I can't say much about the atmosphere (they can certainly improve in that department), but I can certainly rave much about the food! Everything I have ordered on my last visit was simply perfect! Not too salty, not too hot, just nicely done~ On top of that, everything is reasonably priced, and the staffs were very friendly and efficient. The... More
