From the moment you walk in to the time where you eat your desert, it is an experience in itself. You must try the wine pairing menu as you will taste SA's best at a reasonable price. Should be in your top 5 with TTK.

I also had to pay a deposit, a couple of months ago. As the other contributors have said, I think it's to prevent people just not turning up after booking tables.

Is each course served with full glass wine (mix of red and white) if we opt for wine pairing tasting menu? TQ!
