In many guide books but ,as a visitor ,you feel you are not that welcome. Locals get served ahead of you. Go instead to Santa Lucia just down the street .

Good food and good price. We ate everything in the palace! and go back to order again. You have the food freshly made out of oven, nowhere can compare. The milk tea also taste good with the food.
