Went here last night for food. Ordered drinks and food. Drinks came pretty quick, waited ten mind before they brought prawn crackers, then nearly half an hour before starters came, which was satay chicken, warm on the outside, freezing cold in the middle, on that we complained, about the food and service, payed for the drinks and went else where.
