I am giving the restaurant a 4 star because they offered really friendly service. The servers were all accommodating and helpful in making suggestions. The food was average.

Very expensive restaurant, food mediocre and awful presentation, no natural light in the restaurant and bad feeling ambiance. needed to pay to use the toilet, no credit card accepted. Nice and friendly service but I wouldn't recommend to anyone
