This restaurant is on the third floor at the Oval. The dining room is quite large with high ceilings, dark timber architraves and generally colourless. The decor is subtle colonial. The food and service is generally good. Parking is available.

This restaurant is for people who don't get regular home cooked meals. I grew up eating those kinds of meals almost everyday so it wasn't special for me. The food was nice but not my cup of tea. I just went for the sushi and that was a disappointment, the rice was overcooked to the point that it was mashed.... More

We had live entertainment while we dined and... More

Just been there on a corporate breakfast event for about four dozen attendants.
