We walked in late Friday night and the whole experience was nothing but spectacular. From the moment we stepped foot into the restaurant we were greeted with friendly staff. The good was amazing and the service was first class! This place has been around for AGES! A lot of restaurants could learn a great deal from this restaurant.

Last Saturday I had my birthday dinner at this restaurant. We were a table of 20. We did not order the banquet. We ordered individually and all 20 orders came out together. The wait staff were attentive. Food was tasty. The restaurant gave me a small gift for my birthday too.

Wow this place definitely went above expectations. I've been working in hospitality myself in 5* environments for the past decade and I can truly say that the attention to details in this place is incredible. Everything was well thought out from the service, food and decorations.
