“Good food, ok ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

I had dinner at this restaurant last week with a colleague. It was empty when we walked in on a working day evening, but a few people came and joined after that. We had the set menu plus mezze platter. It was nice, but nothing extraordinary. When we ordered the platter, I was quite surprised they served (cols, not warm) Indian chappathi instead of pita bread. That was quite a surprise. The other food was good and my colleague loved the soup so much he packed one for home. The ambience is basic and the layout will not say much either. A lot of food seemed to be displayed in glass cabinet, if I remember right. Made you wonder whether they were reheating. We asked one of the persons to recommend a dessert, and that was certainly the highlight.

Stopped in for lunch set at 128HKD. Choice of appetizer, main and dessert with tea/coffee. Or is it? Turns out the lunch set includes a choice between dessert OR tea/coffee. Confusing, and not adequately indicated on the menu (another restaurant around the corner CLEARLY marks their lunch set as inclusive of a drink AND dessert).

The food was delicious...excellent flavouring and reasonable portions. Presentation was acceptable. However, 3 reasons for this mediocre review: 1) did not have all choices provided for on the menu (seriously?); 2) confusing labelling on the toilet door...is it unisex? Or just a woman's toilet? Fix it.); 3) the lunch set dessert/tea confusion.

I expect more from a restaurant in Hong Kong. Capability of improvement, especially since the food is savoury and satisfying. I'd suggest solving the details to make this a better experience for picky diners like myself. Best of luck.
