Service was welcoming, being able to choose your own seat throughout the weekday. The food was too spicy for my tastes but once informed they gave me mouth cooling refreshments and their jasmine tea was lovely to finish off a lovely meal.

Lovely food, very good service from friendly waitress and waiter. A good place for a party. Cocktails were really nice and we were able to enjoy them away from the dining table in a very comfy seating area, or have a pre meal drink.
