Disappointed with service upon arrival. Refused me for pax of two where bar and back has a big table. Anyhow a Chinese staff came assisted us and we sat for meal. Chicken rice is a total failure. Chicken Chop was okay. Coffee is excellent.

My wife and I visited this Cafe to try out their "signature chicken rice" and the recommended spring roll. We were not disappointed: it was very tasty. However, I think that the chicken rice would not have been sufficient for me. Adding the spring roll...More
