    Stunning restaurant with scrumptious food. The service is impeccable and the place was teeming with beautifully dressed people. Background music would be ideal as the ambiance can be a bit dull. I am also not too keen on going out to be privy to the conversation of others. Furthermore, it is VERY VERY pricey.

    The food that we had ordered was a mixture and variety of dishes and was really nice. The price was what I had expected. However; there is one thing That they could improve is that we got a table for 5 and not all the dishes could set properly as we had to emerge few dishes into one so that the waiter can take it away. However, the service was delightful and kept coming over to see if everything was okay or have anymore drinks etc.

    The food was really nice, and the place is really cool. Hovewer a really felt being rush during the meal, the food was comming even if we didn’t finish the previouse one. And also we receive the cocktail ( with was included) without explanation what is this ( I’m pregnant so I don’t drink spirits) so I was a bit concerned what is this.
