This was the second time we came here. First time was great. Good food, good music and good service. Second time was shocking. The staff kept piling people in when they clearly didn't fit. Took 20 minutes for our order to be taken then after the food it took 25 minutes to get the waiters attention to order more drinks.... More

What an awesome night we had. Fun band, pretty good food (recommend the green chicken curry) the Thai noodles were so chili hot i couldn't eat them (could just be me). Highly recommend this for a group, plenty of room on the dance floor to have some fun

It's an Amazing placing to come and relax in the middle of the city. The food selection is very broad. And the Indonesians singing in Spanish were better that what we expected that's for sure!!

We enjoyed perusing a range of foods. There were heaps of vegetarian options. The 2 for 1 cocktails were excellent.

Go on a Wednesday Night. Amazing Band. Great atmosphere overall, Reasonably priced drinks, though we went to the Cinta Inn next door for 2 for 1 mojitos, then went to listen to the music.

Only enjoyed the cocktails but a nice place with good atmosphere. Looks like a more trendy place to drink and eat. Pricing is more to up scale.
