Nice ambience and it is next to the Garage. The place has a rustic feel as you have padi fields in there. Food is alright and reasonably priced.

Need to improve the service quality as well as the food quality. The waitresses need to have more knowledge on the food in their own menu. I was extremely disappointed with what the chef served us: overcooked lemon chicken (some were burnt), tasteless butter prawns...More
