We went to this restaurant looking for an inexpensive dinner close to our hotel which we got, but the experience was a bit odd. The menu is large and inexpensive but the quality of the food was just okay. Bland and boring but not bad. The place itself is strange because it feels like an old night club that has been converted to a restaurant which gave it an odd atmosphere. However our server was great and helpful which made the experience better. The bill was low and we were full at the end- moderate success! :)

I have been there based on the reviews on TA. The place is big and very nice inside (is a quite modern furnishing), but you can also seat outside on the Avenue. Also, the staff is very kind and the place is handy: quite close to the town centre and to a metro station. The service was quick enough, and the price was good: I spent 14€ for Thai rolls and a Wok. So, what’s more? Not bad, in fact. However, I had the feeling that food was something like a precooked or prepared one (it was only a feeling!). Not bad, however. I feel I would probably come back another time.

We visited this restaurant after reading few reviews on TripAdvisor and so glad we did, very different from tourists restaurant and it's local crowd proves it. Restaurant has two floors and smoking is allowed on upper floor, we saw from teenagers to old couples and groups, well behaved crowd. Drinks and food is reasonably priced although its not a big menu but plenty to choose from such as pasta, burgers, steaks and light snacks. Staff is polite as well, we ate there twice in one week and really enjoyed it.

Very nice place with two floors. Well decorated and located close to city centre. The oriental food here was sort of OK only. As we're Chinese, we do know what is good in that regard. However, the beef and burgers were good. You may get better food in restaurants with worse atmosphere a few blocks away. A waitress was unfriendly and gave us bad impression.
