I tried Tofu and Aubergine for the first time ever as a starter. It was incredible, how Loc makes food taste like that I will never know. My son dislikes both foods but he actually finished the plate off!

The food was absolutely amazing. Me and my girlfriend are both vegan and the choice was great. It was our first time there and we will definitely be back.

A really lucky find. The food choice was excellent and very different. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Took some friends who also enjoyed it and we will definitely be going again.
