I always go here for their coffee and grilled frank sandwich. Food remains the same, service is getting worse. Staffs chat loudly, lot of noise from their kitchen, some even sings aloud. You expect peaceful ambiance but this place is like a school cafeteria. Worse, their wifi limits you to few mins connection only. Will go back here but will... More

Situated inside the departure area, tinderbox is an oasis for the weary travellers who want to chill because of a delayed flight. You can never go wrong with the glass of Cabernet grilled peppered chicken panini and a selection if cheeses from different parts of the world. Did I say service was also impeccably efficient. For most of us who... More

We stayed here for 5 hrs due to Zest Air flight delay. In this 5 hours, we have ordered a lot. The only dish I can remember is the hungarian sausage as the rest was quite ordinary.

It is the place for meats and wine lovers. You can even dined in the back room surrounded by bottles of wines. You can order many imported meat products of the 'grocery' counter and have them serve as cold plate (appetizer). Menu - must try the fish dish and the ribs! Yummy!

I like this restaurant. Its really nice. Best part is the deli though. If you need something special or a good bottle of wine, this is a good place to go.
