Went on a Saturday evening, it was very loud in there. Hard to talk to others on our table. Food ok, standard F&B. Had to wait a long time to be served the kids desserts, by which time they were too tired to eat them.

Service was ok, cheery and efficient, it is just the kitchen that needs to be... More
