I haven’t been able to keep food down for a long time due to morning sickness, but I took one bite of the mushroom pizza and instantly my appetite was back! The holy cow sushi and avocado cheese rolls were so amazing, I never tasted sushi so light but delicious before! Even something as simple as crispy tofu is so well done here.

“Restaurant has good ambience and service is top notch. Food wise there is area for improvement. Seafood and sashimi are fresh and tasty. Indian and western sections are good too. However the grill section and satay are cold. Noticed these sections a good amount is already stacked there. Understand there should be sufficient food to cater to crowd but I think the cooks should try to moderate the qty considering its a pretty quiet Monday night.”

“This cafe located in the centre of a big garden and have very good setting. The indoor decorations in a old building is excellent with many details, even the walls are in marbles and tiles. The outside have resort feel as it’s surrounded by plants and with the back drop of the old building. My opinion the selling point is the environment and in this setting over shine the foods. As a cafe they have all the standard beverages and their western foods are OK. The menu looks like more of a finger food style just good location to meet up friends for chatting. If looking for a place to sit down and relax I strongly recommend this cafe.”

That said, it was really filling but quality of all the food was pretty top notch. Loved the seafood platter especially, every single item was very fresh.
