It is ok for Those who used to fish and fries. But when I visited the place, no alcohol is allowed due to national holidays so food does not taste that good as it could be.

We loved this restaurant. It was clean with fast service and delicious food. The chicken and cashew nuts and green chicken curry and Singapore noodles were our highlights of the meal. Family friendly and in a lovely old hotel.

The dishes were good, we ordered the small portions which was enough considering we had rice an soups which were given very generously. Don't expect any modern fusion staff and you'll be satisfied with what you get. Slightly pricy.
