After visiting the Big Buddha we decided to drop in for lunch and cool down. When you sit down they give you a chilled cloth to wipe yourself with... VERY refreshing!! Great food and Drink selection. If your out thay way its worth a visit.

As this place seemed highly recommended on trip advisor we tried it but found the food pretty bland compared to the Red Onion. Maybe they anglicised it too much. Anyway I've no idea how they made their Marguerita's but I sent the first one back as it was awful and the second wasn't much better.
