Service and food here vary widely, if they are open. We've had good food and service and other times, the service is indifferent and plates are incomplete. Food value is OK. Lots of knick-knacks to look at/buy if you are into that kind of stuff. I felt those were a bit on the expensive side.

The restaurant was dark and empty. It was decorated in pastels and animal prints with strange and large porcelain dolls. The food was a sandwich made of... More

Three of us tried this place out the other day, and I must admit they have a wonderful selection of tea. The food menu has the usual tea house fare, ranging from salads to sandwiches, fruit. Each of us got a pot of tea, a salad and sandwiches. The waitress seemed to be the only one making the food and... More
