We went on the Saturday. The restaurant was packed. Despite that our order came out very quickly. The staff was friendly and gave good advice on how much to order for our group of seven. The food was well presented, looked and tasted good

You can check their menu online Mains would be about $15, most expensive on the menu is $30. The portions are quite big for me, but I eat like a bird :p
