I was first introduced to this restaurant by an local friend. Here a second time, coming back for lunch was on my agenda. The menu is very creative, however, I repeated my order - cauliflower in coconut peanut sauce. So creative and tasty.

The service was great (it was not busy at lunchtime, but I've read you need reservations for dinner). Food is delicious and beautifully presented. I am glad I found this.
