Too over priced. Not worth the price of the food items. Enjoyed the milkshakes. Burgers are not all that.

“Nice food but needs more publicity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

I've there a few times and what strikes me is how nice the food is (the chicken salad is always amazing with really fresh and crunchy lettuce).The ambience and decor is similar to the parent franchise owner. Unfortunately, the place always seems really empty which i think is demotivating to the hardworking and friendly staff. It needs a lot more publicity to create a better experience for all.

“Best location and well known”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Recommended by the locals who could afford to eat there. We enjoyed our meal and could recommend it to others. Best location and well known by most who work with international companies.

“Kinda there...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

Loved... the MUSIC. after that, the rest of it just wasn't all that and a bag of chips. A bit pricey for not particularly spectacular meals, but as I said, the music made up for it. Staff were friendly, but tired.
