I spent New Year's Eve here with about 30 friends. It was my first visit but won't be my last. The food was super tasty and plentiful and they just keep bringing out more! The staff were lovely and made our evening fun, giving us all party poppers, balloons and streamers for midnight. We all got champagne to toast to... More

The food, apart from the chicken satay was not great at all. Ordered salt and paper squid and a few lumps of batter with a tiny sliver of... More

A group of 10 of us came here for a birthday celebration. We had a big table so there was plenty of room for us all without feeling cramped. We had the buffet menu. Starters were tasty and plentiful. The crispy duck and lamb were also very good, although a few fatty bits in the lamb. Mains were of a... More
