I didnt like the place. It was dirty, expensive, only for tourist. I asked them to bring me qucikly one drink because it was so hot day, it looked like they understood however it took at least 15 minutes.

Worth the effort to find. Make sure to reserve an outside table for the sunset view. Good kids menu and overall great value.

OK for the backpack set. Not suitable for those longer in the tooth. Food was OK but nothing special. Pretty divey locale, but I guess I should be grateful that no Delhi belly occurred. Close to the Lake Club show (which was very good).

Great location and view, but very disappointed with the quality of the food. Both the Cesar salad and side salad with the fish wasn't very fresh, with horrible olives. The fish was bland and over cooked. The waiter (young man) however, was lovely and attentive. Go for the view not the food!!!!

Currently I am buying 5k Tomatoes, 1k lettuce, 5k eggplant, 10 k cabbage, 5 k leeks and a number of other items so I can not see how... More

This place is somewhat away from the city and is not easily accessible so I suggest you to visit only if you have excess time.

Not sure what to think about this review but to say that most customers are on holiday and have all the time in the world to eat, drink and meet other people! Regards Michael More

A very pleasant place to spend a few hours overlooking the lake with a mix of travellers and local expats after work. Good music, friendly staff, and we found the Chinese food surprisingly good - also, do try the roasted snack nuts with salt!

We visited for happy hour and stayed the evening. Twice! The balcony is the perfect spot to watch the sun set and see the birds flying down over the lake to roost. Food is chinese and really tasty. Recommend gan bao chicken and garlic cabbage. Lovely cold Lion beer. This place gets busy, happy hour is between 5 and 6... More

Loved it! Great DJ, good food and we had a fun night. No need to book and waiters are helpful with choosing dishes (Loos are awful)

A great place to have a beer and a evening meal. Very close to the city centre and the main accommodation area above the lake.
