It seems every member of the staff managed to spend a few minutes with us during our Saturday evening meal at this fine restaurant. Since we didn't have reservations, we arrived early, hopeful of a chance to dine in a justly popular restaurant. The reception was most gracious. By the time we were finished, the restaurant was at capacity, but that didn't curtail the courtesy and professionalism.
They have a young chef who is trying to fill the big shoes of her predecessor. Our sense is that she is on track. The basil and tomato soup was excellent, and our entrees of green chili chicken curry and fish and chips, while not unusual, were prepared with finesse. So too the desserts.
The atmosphere of the old Turkish bath setting is dramatic, and deftly softened with foliage and lighting.
i am sure they have taken some of the negative reviews to heart. In the U.S., I am happy to tip 20-25% when the service is this warm and gracious. While the menu mentions a 10% built in service charge, it wasn't in effect when we were there. Even if it were, what is the big deal? the bottom line is that this is a restaurant that delivers excellent value, and quality food artfully prepared. Most importantly, they care that you were there.
