This is an incredibly stylish venue with stunning Asian decor, high ceilings and a lively party-like atmosphere. Unfortunately the food simply does not live up to the same standard with generally underwhelming flavours that are incredibly overpriced. For the same prices I would highly recommend...More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs

luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
