Not a lifetime experience but food was OK, lunch was fast and easy. Drinks were OK, fruit juice could have been better. Would go again sometime, but would not recommend it as a place where one has to go.

Stayed in a dorm... More

The pizzas aren't that good, but the spring rolls were surprisingly good. We sat downstairs which was ok but didn't offer the best atmosphere.
