Thank you. It's always nice to get a good review. We've made improvements to our restaurant throughout the year, and we think we are at a point where we can provide a continuous and repetitive service to meet our customers' expectation.

Enjoyed a delicious family brunch here, and meant to return for dinner but ran out of time. Charming staff and good quality food. Lunch and evening menu looked appetising. Sorry we didn't visit again.
