We ordered 4 Lamb Ribs and 1 Lamb Chops. The portion was huge! And the price is very affordable at $18.90 and $16.90. Please do not change your food quality and price, it was awesome! Only grouse is the space is a bit cramped and ventilation is quite poorly. But hey, it works for 5 of us! The staff were all smiley and very friendly. We are DEFINITELY COMING back again.. :)
Good food but the place is a bit squeezy to be honest. Still, love the food! Didnt get to order the chicken wings and spare ribs since we were told its not available at the moment.
