The service was a little slow but being a training restaurant for orphaned and disadvantaged young people that is forgivable. The food was worth waiting for and was delicious. The staff were all very friendly and gave good advice on the menu. Long may it continue.

Amazing place to visit - the service was very slow but it's a training restaurant for underprivileged teens. They work in the restaurant to train and learn cooking and serving skills. The cause is amazing so we didn't mind the wait and the food was definitely worth it. Had the peppercorn steak and it was to die for! I definitely... More
