We went here for a family meal. 6 adults and 4 children. The meal was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. We can highly recommend this restaurant. Every meal was tasty. Particularly liked the chef coming out tocheck everything was ok.

Nice little cafe/restaurant. Good service and quality food. My wife is Chinese and she approved. There is a bottle shop next door and they had no issue with BYO. No corkage fee either.

I was pleasantly surprised by the food but above all the service, more to the attention to customer service or just the genuine care or interest in the customer. A fantastic family business. The young well mannered cashier / waiter was well spoken and was...More
