Been here during the lunch time.. The restaurant is pretty small but has a warm atmosphere but the food was quite bad.. The prawns were not cooked properly and speaking about the chicken dish, I only had 4 small pieces of sweet sour chicken. Conclusion: the price a bit too higher than the quality and quantity of the food..

A very good meal for the price. Basic cafe but friendly service. The menu is not too complex. Limited starters on the specials board makes choosing quick and simple. Mains are a selection of noodles dishes and curries with roast pork, duck, chicken or king prawn. Portions are big and the food comes quick. A self service condiments stations lets... More
