A first time to the local restaurant which was great. Beautiful evening and the service by Ajan and the team was excellent. Good variety on the menu and the mix of Asian/local seafood flavors plus presentation was excellent.

Hate to even tell people about this place because it dosen't seat a lot of people. But the food is so good I can't keep it a secret. I've been there twice this week and maybe again tonight.
