The food is without a doubt really good!! What I founded annoying was that the music was too loud. Next to this, they don’t offer (anymore) shisha, while in some reviews I saw they did.

The salad was all leaf lettuce no other veggies just leaf. It took 30 minutes to get a drink and there were only 4 customers and for the first time no one spoke English

For the record...I really dislike leaving bad reviews. I’m working in Manila and fancied trying some nice restaurants. I’ve been to Buddha Bar in Dubai and that was quite something. So I was hoping for much of the same here. How very different this place...More
