A nice meal

The four mains were the worst we had eaten. The Singapore noodles were bland and mushy, the crispy seafood noodles had some almost burnt noodles... More

Informal atmosphere with welcoming atmosphere.Freshly cooked food served promptly with a smile.Well worth a visit in my opinion and open Sunday evenings and some other times when many are closed.
