The restaurant is located inside the Intercontinental Hotel, and a chef from Thaiti runs it three nights a week. Nice choice of dishes and interesting ingredient combinations ensure the dining experience can actually go beyond the traditional Mahi Mahi: food was actually very well presented...More

I came here for my honeymoon and was pretty disappointed with the food quality. The fish was salty and frozen, and the scallops and lobster were also not fresh. And to put more salt on the wound, the bill was pretty pricey. Avoid!
