We had excellent and high quality food. And the staff are amazing and friendly, offering great service. Highly recommend this restaurant for a work lunch.
Fabulous food range. Good flavour combinations too. Would like to see gluten free labelling on menu though. On a busy Saturday night needed more staff as service was a bit slow.
We had a very accommodating waiter. Very funny and even let us have a lazy Susan on our small table at the birthday boys' request. We had the $45 banquet. Very tasty. Great selection.
