Consider small scale. Should have more sitting area just to enjoy watching the fishes swimming. There is no washroom inside.

Small tanks, few plants. Fish swim in soulless boxes. The ubiquitous double print for foreigner. Upon entering nothing in English , so why pay twice. Reception staff very miserable. On the plus side it was quiet and we had the place to ourselves.
