The food is no good. None of the desserts are any good either...the service takes forever...and with so many better options around, i wonder why people visit this place... disappointed!

We had a terrific lunch break with one of our Chinese visitor. We liked the steak burger and the boneless chicken strips, the ambience was good and the services was excellent. Will visit again when we have an outside visitor.
