Do not try to find the atmosphere of the Guru bar here... The place is nice but something is missing. Also I think the prices are quite high.

Fantastic décor with an exotic orientation, atmospheric music and great overall ambiance. Professional, friendly staff, very helpful. Superb Thai food (bao buns and shrimps!). The best in the northern suburbs by far.
