Wouldn’t visit here again. Terrible service. The waiter literally told us “could you hurry if not I’ll go and do other tasks. I’m very busy” if there’s too much burden on one service employee then pls consider hiring more staff. Terrible staff attitude.

The place is charming and well-located. The service was very nice. However, the dishes we received were slightly burned and it was too salty. A bit overpriced for this quality.

Food was great. it would be perfect if the price go lower a bit and the staff more friendly and more helpful. The restaurant is a little dark, so more lights would help the place looks cleaner and newer.
