I wouldn't recommend this milk bar because the service is rude. It's okay if they don't speak English, but in our case, they were not helping to have at least a nice communication at all. They seemed annoyed that we were there trying to order...More

Most awful service & most unhelpful person I have experienced in this country. It's as if she doesn't like tourists. We tried to order but were told 'no' in very brisk unfriendly manner. Food was awful. Would definitely NOT recommend this place to anyone.
