Food quality overall was quite alright for the amount we paid. Grill and steamboat and quantity for one portion of the food was small but since pricing was reasonable so you can just repeat the orders if you wish to. The spicy dipping sauce was tasty. It was situated in a coffee shop so we chose a table under a fan and it was fine. Seating outside under the shelter with standing fans provided was also fine but it was just too humid to sit there on Sat. afternoon.
portion is alright... food is nice especially the sauce. pricing is cheap too. definitely will be back...
