Food for doggies and human are awesome! Wide options on the menu. Area is also well kept and clean despite it being a dog cafe.

The cafe has a rather big space for the doggies to run around. Food for humans and dogs are not too bad. Parking could be challenging due to limited parking lots.

The environment is lively and it's a very pleasant place to bring family and dogs. The food is ok. The lunch is better than the breakfast. Kudos to the friendly staff.

The restaurant were fully booked and so we were glad that we made our reservation. Food was okay and our dog was certainly happy with his experience and his doggie meal.

The food and drinks were great. The place was quite spacious for pets to run around. Should try to change the bucket of water with the mop more frequently though.

I don really like my food; lamb lasagne as its too salty. But it's not my first time there. Quite like the atmosphere as its big. Need improve dog menu.

The ability to let dog free roam was fantastic but the food overpriced and the chicken I have is not very fresh.But the duck was amazing soft and sweet.

Food is not bad except the cottage pie taste horrible and dry. Staff could be more helpful with taking care of the furbies and helping with the hygiene!

Nice cafe for both humans and doggys. The foods are acceptable,its just that you have to wait quite awhile for it to be serve. Will be back again.
