Had lunch here - a very enjoyable chicken curry. Also two dinners - both set as part of a package. Very good food - my only complaint was that the two menus were very similar. We had a very friendly, competent waiter.

If you want a safe place for a meat place, it's not a bad option, just don't expect fireworks... the food is good but not outstanding.

This restaurant reminded me of the steakhouse in St. Peter burg. Seafood is good but meat is better. Wine selection is wide and value for money. Today the t-bone is on offer at 500 random for a 500 gym cut.
