Had dinner yesterday with my friends, haven't been to this place for a year, nothing has changed, food is fresh and tasty as usual. The staff is fantastic. Don't forget to try the local beef curry with garlic rice. All the very best.

I just dropped in for a drink and snack. The mojito was great... but unfortunately the devilled prawns were so overcooked they were dry and tough (albeit the sauce tasty). Not a good experience...
