I’ve saw the high ranking on a different app and pictures of long line. Boy was I disappointed after sipping a full spoon of broth. This place is for tourists who don’t know any better. It was a waste of time to come here.

There is always a queue to this place. We were lucky we came during non peak time. They are very organised and the service was very quick. Defnitely a go too place if the queue is not huge ;)
