Went there with my foreign guests who attended my wedding and never failed me once. Ordered totally seafood plates and the taste and the portions are highly recommendable. Service also very good and the private parking available in the restaurant. Highly recommended..

I always visit this place when I’m in Hikka! All the times before the food was fantastic! I bring all my friends and family every time! However this time the hot butter cuttlefish was in a particularly unappealing sauce which I didn’t care for and...More
