I have visited this restaurant during a business trip, the food quality was perfect, but I think it is a place to be for a romantic dinner with your partner

After having an excellent brunch at zest we carried on the day with our party of 20 in trader vics. The service was prompt & efficient and Mr Fonsecka made the most delicious coktails & always with a friendly smile. Thank you to Mr Hossan & his great team. We look forward to next time.
