We had lunch here with fresh fruit juice and pita bread with crudites. Portion was not big and price not low but it was tasty and all we needed on a hot day. Very civilized!

I had the Singapore chilli crab and it was delicious. The service was fantastic and the music met our expectations for the reputation this restaurant has for a great play list. I highly recommend this restaurant for dinner.
