The sparsely customer-populated restaurant offered an intersting menu. My pork dinner took 55 minutes to arrive. One portion was overcooked,dry and tough. The remainder was fine, a mystery in time and execution.

I have visited this place many times over the last 10 years. It was a great place to eat. Not anymore. Bsic food which is substandard bearly warm.

The wait person tonight was more interested in cleaning than taking my money at check out time.

Was vibrate with lots of people there. No more. Best avoided

Both of us had pork belly which came out luke warm, and not very well cooked. The fat was still solid, not rendered down at all and connective tissues were still very tough. In effect it was cold and chewy. No taste or seasoning to speak of. Way overpriced at $42. We declined dessert as they are all bulk purchased, reheated with cream squirted on top. Nothing much seems to be made on site, even the potato rosties are bought in. This used to be a good restaurant but they have slipped badly.
