Had the occasion to go to this restaurant while rushing in-between meetings. While I always prefer the Rosebank Koi because of atmospherics, the food quality and service is so similar that you could be in any of the two...always recommended.

Welcomed with gentleness and smiles at reception. Quickly attended to with professionalism. Waiting staff know their menu and couple advise on light meal options. Succulent meals, freshly made. Big ups to the chef!
