Yesterday we had lunch, ordered two dishes and after a while we got asked what we have ordered because our order got lost. Finally we got our lunch. Seafood basket was good, crispy salmon on mesh was okay.

Stayed for lunch on recommendation from a friend. Recently under new management. Didn't disappoint. Meals were generous sizes. Pepper steak was beyond good. Staff were very welcoming & engaged in small talk. Will be back. Good work. Keep it up.
