We tried the course meal, the seafood are very fresh and tasty. Atmosphere is wonderful, however if you prefer a quiet place then avoid this restaurant. If not, it’s a very good experience!

For teenagers and 20 year olds. Noisy silly young adults running around. Food is served on the table without forks knives or chopsticks. OK food, but it doesn't make up for the crazy noise. Call me old, I know.
