Served prawns which were dried and awful, the vegetables were soggy and tasteless, the drinks took ages and we ended up getting up to stand at the bar ourselves. Expensive and not worth it

Excellent start to the day. Fresh line fish with a touch of lemongrass made an excellent light lunch as we head out to explore The Palace. Attentive staff in a small semi private dining room.
