Excellent food , right portion of servings and very fair pricing. But the queing system needs improvement. It's basically no system to queue which is quite difficult especially on a hot day with whinny kids.

Pretty good variety and tastes. Prices are average reasonable but portion alittle small. Have to go early to get a table otherwise you'd hv to queue outside the restaurant.
