Great onsite prepped food by Katia and her team. Good service and interesting presentation of very tasty dishes. Love the pasta and the quiche is also a good option.

Lovely little spot for lunch in the city. Food is tasty however, portions are small (salmon) for the prices asked.

Had a birthday celebration with 20 family and friends. Wow what nice engagement by the owners and such fantastic and honest service. Well done to all the people at SMAK. What a pleasure that all our needs were taken care of and the cheese cake is to die for. Well done to such a fresh approach to food and customer service. Keep it up.
