Hi, Does anyone know how the reservation process goes? Made a reservation with an email saying "Thank You for your reservation" which states I should hear back from a staff member but I haven't received a second email. Does this mean it is not confirmed yet? Thanks in advance

Response from Alia A | Reviewed this property |
Yes, reservation is highly recommended before you go there. Otherwise, you either don't get any seat, or you might need to wait for a long time to get seated. You can make an online reservation through their website.
