“not up to it's reviews!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

mediocre - inattentive staff - meatballs - large but burned, chicken dishes - not that great - rice stodgy! as said - not up to much! only place we went where the kids got crayons/colouring in sheets - but it's not worth the prices

“Good Pizza Doesnt Make Up For Poor Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Pretty good pizza but the service is pretty lousy. Our server seemed more interested on shouting over us in Dutch at a Dutch couple sitting behind us; I appreciate the restaurant obviously caters to Dutch people but that shouldn't mean that a paying customer should be made feel unwelcome.
