Amazing food but do not try to eat it all. You would end up like Monty Python's Mr Creosote. The advice is it is normal and not impolite to leave loads, it is Ok and expected to do this and also means you will enjoy the food more. Just have a taste of each dish. You still will eat loads... More

Visited for lunch on Monday this week. Couldn't recommend it more. Do not eat breakfast as the food at lunch just kept coming. You won't need to eat dinner either. Not a single dish that I didn't enjoy.

The food is so good. The quantities / varieties are beyond what you could eat. Try to go in big groups of 6+ so you may consume most of the food. Seating in the first floor is very quiet with no entertainment/ customers in this level are mostly seniors. The ground floor has more youthful decoration, life entertainment, and young... More
