This isn’t a place for a quiet meal and some pints- it’s right in the heart of it all and has good food and service. The inside is really cool to see. The views of the city are fun.

We had a fairly large group & despite having a reservation, we were at two separate tables. The staff were excellent but the food was only OK. I had oriental stir-fry with prawns & the shellfish were way past their best. Other dishes were OK...More
