I had their steamed mussels along with the tempura prawns. Food was well cooked. The Tom Yum was not as good compared to other places.

Food and service was outstanding! The decor and atmosphere is disappointing though. Decor needs a revamp ASAP.

We were invited out for a business dinner about 2 weeks ago and it was a wonderful evening out and the food was a true experience. I had the duck as mains and every bite was soooo delicious.
