It is def. a nice place to chill. But we think the food is ok and the service is just right not over the top. Price wise it is expensive, exp. alcohol. just note there are plenty of bike parking but hard for the car.

The prices are a bit expensive compared to... More

Delicious Thai dishes. Really good price as well. You can pass on the desserts, it's not their specialty.
