This was my second time to dine at NICE. The food and service were both wonderful, and the setting lovely. We had a private room for a party of about a dozen.

Enjoyed our meal. Had Spingbok steak - soft tender and simple delicious. Spouse had Thai green curry with chicken. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly & well trained staff. House wine was fitting to the meal & most enjoyable. Not to pricey, except for the desert.

I think you would be better contacting NICE directly. I don't have this information I'm sorry. I would recommend the restaurant however.
