The new decor looks really nice. The place was really overdue for an update. I had great food there 3 years ago. I went in February and it was pretty bad. The lunch buffet a few weeks ago was pretty small and lacking in vegetables...More

Go for Indian food on Duckworth Street until this place has a bit of a shake up. I was told by friends that it had been great, bit cold (as in temperature) in winter but great food, great value
