Great food and good service

Just had a lovely meal here. Vegetable wrap and the Baba Ganush were excellent and the atmosphere was nice - a mix of locals and tourists. Service was good too :)

I was blown away by this place. Delicious food and great service. I tried the veggie wrap after a gym session which was perfect and came with sweet potato fries cooked in a very healthy way. I will be going back for sure to try the goulash. Best restaurant in KK and very reasonably priced.

A restaurant that uses market fresh produce (saw it being hand carried during our meal) and tastes like it!

Don't have the chocolate chilli beef! Everything else we had was excellent and reasonably priced. It is small and gets busy 7-8PM so may be worth booking in advance

Discoved this place just by walking pass by it in the street and noticing the specials board. The food was fresh and very tasty as a reasonable price, which is very rare in Kota Kinabalu. Loved the chicken quessadillas and the mediterranean salad. Service could be faster but the food was worth the wait.

Went for lunch 4 of us after seeing the TripAdvisor recommendation, and were not disappointed. Friendly and cosy, great value. The special menu for 19 is a bargain. Wine and coffee good too.
