Service, food and environment is simply bliss. A must try. The owner himself is on the floor working and making sure everything is perfect. Customer comes first is like their number one objective. Visited twice and no disappointment.

Very very very very bad food. The tenderloin I ordered sucked so bad. The oysters wasn't fresh as expected. Did not finish my steak. Pricey with this kind of food and bad environment with lots of mosquito. Dessert was bad too.

Well... How can I describe Raj. What a man... Elegant, stylish, a true gentlemen in every sense of the word. It was once thought that chivalry was dead, that was, until, we met Raj. The kind of man that will never let a parched mouth...More
