A great choice to go. The food is refreshing and the steak is cooked perfectly. Made a reservation in advance as night time the place can be crowded especially on weekend. Would definitely come back if we come to visit again

We went to this restaurant based partly on the positive online ratings, but we found the food uninspiring, much to salty, and over-priced. There are better places in the vicinity.
