We visited to restaurant today. Service was almost non existing. Every time we wanted to order something we had to searching for a waitress. No follow-up to find out if we needed anything.

We visited this establishment and had the Oxtail and their curry. Waiters was friendly but service a bit slow. Oxtail was bland but curry very nice and tasteful. Overall an average experience but we will be back to give it another try.
