Lunchtime visit. Limited set menu but I like that. Food was very fresh with excellent presentation, piping hot and very tasty. Very good value. I would have walked passed the restaurant if I hadn't read reviews. I will definitely return and highly recommend.

We had pork belly and Korean barbecue with duck and some dumplings. The duck was delicious, and the pork belly was ok. The dessert cheesecake was very good, and so was the coffee.
