lovely food at superb value, the staff were really helpful and nice. At E11.00 for mains and drink it couldnt come in at better value. I had the chicken stir fry with jasmine rice, plenty of meat and fresh vegetables. Will most certainly be back

First time visit & really liked the vibe. Friendly welcome from really knowledgeable staff. Food was interesting and tasty. I’d definitely go again to try another dish. Though the cost was a little in the high side for lunch.
