Went for a quick lunch as had to leave for the airport in 3 hours - menu was a mixture of local dishes, other asian dishes (thai glass noodle salad, laksa etc) and popular western dishes. Did not pay too much attention to the western dishes as was looking to sample more local dishes. Nothing exotic, range of local dishes... More

Charming little place. Service is good, but the food is even better. Only a few dollars more than other places in the area, but with much more value. Desserts was ok. But I'd stick with the food.

We stopped by as this place was recommended by our guide and of course the trip advisor reviews were good. You can choose to sit inside or on their patio. We chose the indoors due to rain, but the patio was very pretty. It is a training restaurant where the staff is friendly and attentive. We tried 3 dishes, salad,... More

Delicious but small servings. Service was very relaxed until you went to pay, then they hovered! Will go back for sure. Great coffee and mango chicken!
