They took our order wrong and we waited more than 45mins for our seafood mix grill to come. The only reason we choose this place is becos of the location~by the waters. Nothing fantastic or special about this restaurant. There's better ones nearby

place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
