This is a very special restaurant, although it is situated inside a mall with plenty of restaurants around, it's a totally different level than the restaurants around it. The starters and the main platters are so unique and tasty. A must try! Dont forget to...More

Great food and great service. The simplicity of the menu and the willingness of the waiters to answer your questions and make recommendations makes it a winner. I have eaten here since they opened and never once had a problem.

A nice restaurant that offers something different. We have been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner and we have not left disappointed. The service can be slow though. The food is good and very well presented.

We had a lovely dinner with friends. The setting is not so nice as it is in a mall, but that would not stop me from returning. Service was attentive and friendly. I can't remember what exactly we had but it was all good.

Wonderful variations on the breakfast theme, with a local slant. Delightful juice flavours and boboti spring rolls to name just a few. Will have to experience their lunches and suppers too!
