“Great food and great cause”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

Firstly the idea of taking on street kids is fantastic but also the food and service is top notch! I recommend the purple yam soup and slow cooked pork.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

Great mandate--helping under priveleged kids. Our poor waitress had a black eye. the service was way better than I expected, even better than a lot of places back home. Food was unreal. Must do!

“Excelent food, high price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

I went for the set menu and everything was really good. The purple soup was very interesting.

Desert was a tiny plate of fruits, though.

Next time I would rather order separate dishes.

Service was impeccable.

“Worth a visit for many reasons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Training kids to give them a future with a hand up rather than a hand out is hugely commendable.
Food, service and prices are very good, thoroughly deserves a visit and your support, you will not be disappointed.

“Five star concept and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Outstanding service and a brilliant concept, this restaurant deserves five stars for it's initiative. The food is very edible - it's not fantastic but it's certainly not bad and is very well priced. Definitely worth a visit!
