Terrific food and good service. With a lot of shellfish on the menu I was worried as I have a severe allergy but the knowledge of the staff put me at ease.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience, absolutely the best Pan-Asian meal I’ve ever had, very nice clean comfortable restaurant and great service. I truly recommend the slow cooked beef it was mouth watering. A must place to eat and reasonably priced.
