Checked this place out again for Mother's Day dinner after a lapsed of a year. There is no more live band. Smoking and Non smoking section is too close making it redundant to have non smoking area since we still walk out that place smelling like a chimney. Food taste and quality has dropped tremendously. Ordered wild mushroom soup to go with the bread but was served thick instant mushroom soup which I can get for RM2 from Pizza Hut. Only maintaining is the solo manager-waiter-cashier good hospitality and the ambience.
Hope they will improve.

came back here with my family and the good news is that they have changed their menu. had the smoked duck aglio olio and the taste is really good. thumbs up to the chef. they have a new reggae band as well... it was a 5-piece band so it was quite loud but the music was great! my dad enjoyed the band so much, we stayed till midnight! (*quite surprising as he usually don't stay up till too late). highly recommended if you are into rock and reggae music and looking for a nice place to chill out at night.
