Needs a bit more TLC

The airconditioning in the front section needs to be turned on or replaced. Happy with the food itself. Good value for $. I don't like the flies they get sometimes.

I quite liked the food a little pricey but I like it but they should work on variety a bit. However it was great to have nice friendly people serving and i had a great time over all.
