“Excellent food highly recommend”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Went here for a meal with family, this is the first real food i have eaten here in America, the chef cooks the food fresh in front of you on a massive hot plate in the middle of seating for 8 people, he starts of by twirling the cooking implements very entertaining, you start with a bowl of soup delicious, then a salad very nice, the chef then appears and cooks your rice which was the best rice i have ever had, he then cooks fresh vegetables and leaves on the side of the hot plate, he then proceeds to cook the meat and fish, i had scallops and king prawns, this is pure entertainment and a culinary delight, if you are in the area you must visit here, the food is a little more expensive but well worth the money.
