A nice spacious restaurant but we waited quite awhile for our orders and the service was poor. Had to chase up on missing orders. The food was average. Unfortunately for them, not a place we will go back to.

We ducked in here for dinner in a rainstorm and wish we had kept walking! There was little by way of welcome and the food ended up being pretty poor too. The chicken and sweet corn soup was tasteless and greasy. The rest of our...More

Shocking Service! Last night, 1 July 2017, got to the Restaurant around 6.35pm. We ordered, within 10 minutes. Then we waited and waited and waited. The restaurant wasn't full maybe 40% of capacity. The waiter's English was very poor. He could not communicate with us....More
