Loosing the reputation and quality?

I have been to this place many times but few years ago this was a very good restaurant but my recent visit to this place for dinner was not so impressive as the food was not really that great. but reasonably okay.

This place is near the Temple of Tooth. It gives the service for both foreigners and locals. The place is very neat and there is a variation of food types to select. We can have any function, Party, Meetings in it.
