I called and managed to secure a booking for that evening. Very popular so I got lucky! Nice cozy, romantic setting with a “passionate about her business” owner who really seemed to care about our food, the fact that we were tired after a long...More

We stumbled upon this place by chance and were mainly attracted to it because my boyfriend's surname is Miller and he broke his thumb twice this year. Irony aside, the restaurant is well worth visiting on an empty tummy! We should have booked ahead but...More

Here you can eat new fish with new styles. You just choose the fish and ask if the style works for it! Moroccan style, Malay style, curry style with basmati rice! Really worth the try...
