“Surpasses any expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

What a wonderful all round experience. The food, ridiculously good especially the black cod and the crispy chicken salad. The service is impeccable. The giant gold Buddha is beautifully imposing. I can't wait to go back!!

“No surprise here, it has the reputation it deserves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

A nice place to grab a drink in a city where consuming alcohol is not possible in restaurants.
The music is good, the drinks are great, however I haven't tasted the food. It's a trendy place that get really crowded.
Careful, for the few of us Europeans no longer used to smoking in bars... Definitely doesn't apply here... Two cigar smokers next to me... I had to call it an early night :-(

“Hated it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

In fairness - probably down to my age. £8 a small bottle of beer - gave the equivalent of a tenner and never saw the barman again. Stupidly loud music and full of people smoking. Got out as quickly as possible

“Beatiful decoration.......thats it!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

If you are looking for a place where to eat something, this is not the right place at all.
The place is really beautiful, with good and very kind stuff, but the food is inedible, plastic horrible food, super-fried, no tasty, and the list goes on and on.
