The lighting, fixtures, paintings, and whatnot set the mood for your dining experience. They have really good and tasty food though kind of limited variation. A sweets shop next door and also good selection of cocktail drinks. Go for the cocktail drink, I must say.

We went to this restaurant on 13 April 2011 and it had opened just a week beforehand. The decor, both inside and out, was novel and really tasteful. Food was delicious and service great. Even the owner came up and asked us personally how we found the food and service. I'd highly recommend a meal here!
