Fantastic night had by our group of 17. The dish recommendations were delicious and perfectly chosen. We ate it all with gusto! Service was excellent and we loved the new upstairs area. Highly recommended and we will definitely look forward to returning. Thanks.

Ordered the "Mini-mix" from the lunch menu as well as the Sweet and Sour Fish from the dinner menu. Plenty of food for two and exceptional quality of food. As usual staff were very helpful and very friendly.

Excellent food, amazing service and a warm inviting atmosphere. The Crispy Duck and Pina Colada cocktails were to die for. We were looked after by Markis, who truly has a talent for customer service and making your night a memorable experience. Thank you.
