The food is quite average and it doesn't worth to wait more than one hour to have the main course. Slow service and rude staff. DON'T eat here. There are plenty of good alternatives in the neighborhood.

This is a very big & busy restaurant. Food was served quickly & is tasty. There are lots of staff. Always seems to have a queue of diners at the door but has a quick turnaround.

We're Norwegians and we've been here four times now. This is a crowded place in the evenings so you should probably make a reservation, at least in the weekends. Anyway- we've been 4-9 people together here, and they've always managed to get us a table!...More

Came here twice, the food is of the highest quality and the price is very reasonable. I strongly recommend this restaurant, get in early as you'll have to queue, that is how good this place is. 5 star!

Big restaurant, good service, flavoursome food, we tried the Mongolian beef, the volcano shrimps, and the orange chicken, all nice but not amazing, the Singapore style noodles wasn't great, quite oily. Still, it was overall ok. Julio was a good and attention waiter .
