Back home I love my Asian inspired spicy foods. Being abroad I normally avoid anywhere claiming to make authentic Asian food. That is until now. We had a table set next to the swimming pool which was beautiful and made for a relaxing atmosphere. The...More

With their new Asian style Wok food menu this restaurant deserves to do well. If you are looking for something different in the area then give it a try. The food had the WOW factor and excellent, spicy and well presented by first class and...More
