Firstly, it's a mess. No investment in this place. Scruffy, unkempt feels cheap & dirty, left side of the restaurant seems to be for storing junk as well, not a place for a romantic meal! Secondly, totally inappropriate music, played extremely loud. I mean, I...More

The food was really nice, with fresh bits and bobs added. I had the beef with oyster sauce and rather than the standard, it came with fresh ginger and various different mushrooms added. Everyone was happy with their food and even the vegetarians had choices....More
