Cheap but the staff are so rude, put me right off. Food is nothing special. The soup bowls are quite big.

I have been to this restaurant few times. I usually go to their other branch which is in Cutty Sark, just outside the station. The food is delicious and enormous portion. Great value for money and a very good selection in their menu. Service is...More
