Nice place, Asian fusion restaurant. Tasty starters with tuna crackers, and good scallop as main course. Very kind service, and quick as well. The music (commercial/house music) was not fitting with the place, I would have chosen something different. Good stop if you are visiting...More

We went there on a Monday and the place was fully packed which is a good sign. Nothing to say on the food, fresh, good flavours and diligent service. Only issue the place is really noisy. It's difficult to get a proper conversation there.
