We love all the dishes we ordered, delicious and perfect taste. The atmosphere is very cozy, the service is very friendly, the prices are a bit expensive but serving portion is big. They also serve live and fresh seafood.

A nice spacious restaurant but we waited quite awhile for our orders and the service was poor. Had to chase up on missing orders. The food was average. Unfortunately for them, not a place we will go back to.
