First Review by blackrabbit

Good food but awful service - Edit

Unless you're a pescetarian, don't expect a lot of choice at this place. Although the menu's veg section seems large, most dishes are prepared with fish or oyster sauce and it seems to be difficult for the kitchen to omit it.

The waiter was also very inflexible and couldn't add vegetables to my tofu dish(?!) so it was marinated fried tofu only. Very good one, admittedly. I ordered stir fry veg as a side dish but ended up paying a full main course price for it (70R). Rice costs extra as well. I was told that juices are freshly squeezed from the actual fruit but that was clearly not the case and I was served somewhat industrial juice. When refusing to tip my waiter for the bad service, he got upset and bitched about us with his colleague.

Staff was smoking in the dining room shortly before the restaurant opened so it smelled of tobacco when we came in.

Not a very pleasant experience.
