“Food was disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

*Please note, we didn't stay here, only came for a meal*

We were really excited to eat here after reading good reviews on the place, but were unfortunately disappointed.

All five of us felt that our meals weren't that great ( rice & curry, prawn fried rice, deviled prawns).
All the prawn dishes were distinctly lacking in prawns (only 4 were found but about 8 heads!)

The setting was lovely but the service was slow (took about an hour to come out).

Maybe it was just an 'off' night, but we won't be going back or recommending this place to friends as it wasn't good value for money.
