Waited an hour for pizza . Wrong order. The staff seemed utterly disinterested that the service they offer is F grade. If they were in Sydney they wouldn't last a week. Horrible experience. Ruined my night. I'm still waiting in a refund.

Had dinner here tonight. The service was the best thing and even that was average. They weren't rude but they were far from excited to have customers. Requested that the entree comes out before the mains, this did not happen. Main dish of pasta came...More
