Also had had drinks from there bar and our bill was over 50 pound already..... She was extremely rude unprofessional and I... More

Went for a birthday meal and the staff were extremely rude. No warm greeting, just told to 'sit there'. We were not asked how the food was, and ordering more resulted in a sigh and seemed to be a hassle. The bill was ripped from our hand when we went to pay. It was very unsettling and I did not...

Went with 4 friends who always make dinner enjoyable so maybe a little "rose tinted glasses" review The portions are really small so order plenty but would only really recommend the starters so a good idea to fill up on those first and then only order main meals if still hungry but forget the crispy duck as very poor

My wife took me out after we found 4 other places were closed, it was busy but the food was tasteless and looked the same, everything they called spicy came with chillies on the side and not in the food itself, everything was also deep fried, it was disappointing as I was hungry and this was an all you can...

I have used this restaurant for the last 10 years and have had to mention something to management a handfull of times. Everything is quickly rectified i have read reviews about this establishment and find them very fickle, the staff are mostly Malaysian and sometimes come across as abrupt when busy and as for children running around perhaps the parents...
