At the entrance there is a large cage with 2 panthers. They have a huge grill outside and cook delicious food. Reminds me of Carnivores in Nairobi, Kenya.

Nearly everything on the menu is delicious, you wont regret it, but your wallet will! I suggest the pepper steak, river shrimp, salmon carpaccio, the duck breast, and the oven-baked brie.
