This restaurant has excellent service and the food is so tasty. I was very happy with this restaurant and I highly recommend it. The only downside is that it's a bit expensive.

A really good asian restaurant that provides excellent food at a good price. The restaurant in on the first floor but has elevator access via the aquarium. I recommend the spring rolls and mixed satay dishes.

The place is very old and just dirty . Best of luck using the toilets that you don't get some sort of disease. Food flavour less and very get expensive. How is this 4 star on trip advisor are they rating themselves. Stay away
