Had a lovely lunch here. Recommendations and service was amazing. Food was really quick and so good. Had a good laugh with the waiter. The atmosphere was just great. Thanks for making my visit a special one!

File this under "should have known better". I have this thing I do with restaurants. If it's a weekend, Downtown anywhere in the world, and a restaurant is empty...the food sucks, don't go. There were two tables seated at Papaya at 7:30 on a Friday,...More

We had some trouble to finding this place. However, we found it and were able to park on the street for free. A bonus! We entered this establishment around 5 P.M. We were the only ones there and we were well taken care of. There...More

This was my go-to place for cocktails and consistently good food, albeit at a bit of a high price tag. My last four visits were decidedly underwhelming. Visit #1, crab in my sushi roll tasted less than fresh; companion's udon noodles (ordered vegan) tasted like...More
