I really love its atmosphere and natural decoration. Very quiet and peaceful. Food is fine with good price. However, waitresses are so unwelcome. Don’t even share a smile to us. It seems like they really look down on us. Maybe they think we’re Cambodian, not...More

Awful mock ham with my spagetti with tomato, didn’t say anything about it in the menu. My partner got tasteless deep fried dumplings with barely any filling, accompanied by ketchup. The staff were not very serviceminded at all. Very disappointing over all.

I was excited for a vegetarian meal before hand, but was disappointed. There was no one else there, the portions were small and not tasty. Any street food place is better tbh.
