I’ve eaten here several times. The food is always delicious, but plan to be there for a while. Even when they are super busy, the service is still very slow. The fried shrimp are amazing, highly recommend.

Plums was recommended to us by our van tour guide. She appeared to know the city quite well. Plums offers both outside and inside seating. A lot of it is water view. The menu had a nice variety of dishes with reasonable pricing.
