I was one of Lasan's first customers when it opened many years ago. It took a long time for it to get known and to build up to its current reputation. It is an outstanding restaurant, for the quality of the food, for presentation, for...More

Looking at some of the negative reviews we were slightly apprehensive before we arrived. Yes the decor could do with updating but looking at management response this is something that's being planned for. We were greeted by a nice gentleman and waited on by a...More
