Love this place! The food is so tasty and such a variety of food, all of which is consistently good (I’ve basically tried the whole menu). The staff are always so friendly and better still everything is very well priced.

Had a Groupon afternoon tea here today. It is a little cafe, basic inside. The merchant hotel it is not. However the voucher was inexpensive and the food and service were excellent. No complaints from myself and three friends. Would happily return.
