The restaurant offers a good blend of cuisines and good spread of Veg & non-veg options. It has well spaced out indoor & outdoor seating. The Veg Turban was interesting - name & presentation both. They have menu from soup & starters to main course and desserts. They serve pastries as well. Very reasonably priced. Good place for outings with all kinds of groups

Their food is simply amazing! Bursting with flavour, excellent taste and beautifully presented. Every single item I have ordered has been delicious! The manager, Kevin, is very hands on, experienced, professional and always at hand to assist. I would only ask them to improve on their desserts. The few dessert options on their menu are OK but can be improved. They order their cakes from their sister company, Cheers Bakery, whose cakes are ultra sweet and loaded with cream and icing so you can barely taste the cake itself. Each cake I have tried has been sickeningly sweet and I end up slicing away all the cream and up with almost nothing for a cake! So all I can ask if for them to up their game on desserts! Otherwise, their food, ambiance, location, setting, service is really good!

Having enjoyed the exquisite food, the more than friendly service, and the lovely relaxed atmosphere many times, this place has become almost like a second home :) A few days ago, the already superb menu has become even better and the restaurant has added some super offers plus the chef has created some really outstanding dishes (e.g. Roasted corn soup and jalapeno soup, sesame grilled fish with lemon butter, grilled veg and choice of potatoes). The cocktails and drinks are great and cater for any choice. Prices are very affordable, the staff is super and the manager an absolute gem. Thank you guys for being there - you make my stay and my daily work even more enjoyable.

The food has very good ambience, very fresh food, actually farm fresh and courteous staff. However, the service is wanting.
