Loved the food left feeling very full indeed. Steak was Kapai and as for the fish, a lot of the food was a little raw. The combination of the fish and the vegetables didn't match. But the presentation was well presented and tastie.

Arrogant and condescending manager, obviously been there too long! They made a mistake which is fine, they happen, but a simple apology would have been nice!
