    Had my birthday on the 2nd of June and had an amazing experience. The attendant was very attentive to our needs. The 2in1 $65 set menu tasted great. Also had birthday greetings on the dessert which made it extra special. Thanks.

    The food is decent in taste and portions but nothing really outstanding. The staff was overly attentive, keep asking if we are done as if they want us to leave quickly but we are still under one and half hours at the end. Makes us uncomfortable

    The food is alright. However, I left my scarf at the dining table on Saturday and rang them to ask if they find it the following Monday and I was told that nobody reported that they find the scarf. The Lady at the reception has difficulty hearing me and I have to voluntarily repeat what I am saying or spell the words to her. I still have to wait if someone found it. I am sure that I left it there as I checked our photos and after lunch we took some photos outside the restaurant and I am no longer wearing the scarf.

    what a great birthday celebration I had. our group opted for the $65 set menu. every single item was completely delicious. Staff accommodated the requests for one vegetarian and one gluten-free with no problems at all. we had the two-for-one (ie half price) set menu which left more cash for fantastic cocktails and very reasonably priced good wine. Did I mention the staff? they were great. super quick to top up glasses and take used plates away, without being obtrusive or hovering. and so pleasant and friendly. Would definitely recommend for large or small groups.

    What a pleasant surprise. We had the banquet and every item was delicious. My Husbands favourite were the oysters and I loved the duck in betel leaf but it was all very fresh, tasty and different. The staff were very attentive and the food came out quickly but we were asked when ready for each plate. Would definitely return.
