This is a well located restaurant very colourfully decorated! The menu choice was extensive and reasonably priced. Food was very good and the staff helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

A review of this restaurant would be incomplete without mention of the ludicrous number of ugly little dolls which are literally everywhere you look. I found them quite unnerving!
