This is a good place to have a drink with friends, or to have a meeting during the day. The vibe is great and the music is good. During the day it is a good restaurant but at night especially towards the weekend it becomes a vibe place.

This place is practically deserted during the daytime haha! But I enjoyed the ambiance on the inside. The waiters not so great honestly. For starters the food took very long before it was served. And one of them brought the wrong drinks! We literally waited almost eight minutes before another waiter came to take our order. That being said. Their... More

The restaurant itself is nicely laid out, lit etc. Service was also fine. Food was very salty and we had to ask for the bill 3 times from 3 different people. Main issue is that it is attached to a bar and we had to shout to make conversation owing to the volume of the music.

Besides the welcome and being taken to our table, the other experiences were not worth coming back for. - Napkins missing at the table - we had to ask for these. Similarly when we got our sushi, the chopssticks and soy sauce did not come with the food - we had to ask for these as well. - Waiter was... More
