Lovely food and good cause. Herb chicken and chicken kav was very tasty. Came with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetable. A great break from noodles and rice

This is a great restaurant/NGO that trains disadvantaged children from the local community and there is a lot of information available inside the restaurant as to how the NGO operates and the good it does. I ate here as part of a party of 15 and service was admittedly on the slow side however it is forgivable considering the nature... More

Food was mediocre. Instant noodle dishes gross. Service....not really existent. They ignored us after they took our initial order and we had to get up and flag someone down for drinks and the check after that. Happy to help the cause though, that's the only reason you should go here.

The service was a little slow but being a training restaurant for orphaned and disadvantaged young people that is forgivable. The food was worth waiting for and was delicious. The staff were all very friendly and gave good advice on the menu. Long may it continue.
