The do no accept reservations, you'll have to cue outside, the place is very big and generally is not too long before you get a table
Hi. I have sent an email to your restaurant to reserve a table but I haven't got any reply or confirmation from you. Is that the right way to do the booking? Please do reply. Thanks.
