Staff are really nice! They are really kind and very professional. The ambiance is really elegant and classy. They even have my brother a complimentary small cake which is awesome! All in all good job. The food may need more varieties though. :)

The food was great! They also had a little chef's activity for the little ones to keep them busy. I would like to give a special shout out to Ebin, Azhar, Vineeth for assisting us with our party this weekend! Great job guys!
