Very tasty food at a good price. Friendly service and watched a staff picked up accidental dropped cutlery/toys thrown by children. Waited a little too long for dessert but would still go back.

Hi. Firstly, i would like to apologise for your experience. However after reading your review, i do believe that you might have got the wrong establishment. You were mentioning about a delivery and we do not deliver. If you could kindly remove this review as we believe your experience is not with our restaurant, we would very much appreciate it....
