The most amazing food and service. Excellent wine list. We were really quite late in arriving and it made no difference. The whole experience was excellent, from the beautiful homemade bread, canapies , starters and mains. Didn't have dessert but were then given lovely chocolates. Had our picture taken which was then framed and given to us free of charge.... More

If you're in KK and looking for a fine dining experience on a budget this would be your first choice. Not only they serve food made to tickle your tastebuds but their service is also exemplary. My suggestion Fondue Wagyu beef Salmon fillet
