Came here for dinner. We had to wait for 3 long minutes standing at the entrance before one of the running waiters decided to welcome us.

Limited menu but good selection of Asian and Western favorites. They do not serve alcohol as they do not have a liquor licence but you can take your own with no corkage charges. Nice restaurant.
