Great flavours- unusual and refreshing! Lots of herbs and veggies accompanying the dishes. Good place for lactose-intolerant person like myself. Desserts were yummy too. Portions were quite generous.
Very relax place for a weekend brunch. It serves all day breakfast. The vegetables are fresh. It's very popular and always full house.
I ordered the sweet potato and pumpkin hash and it was not nice. Generally the menu is very expensive and I did not think that the price was justified. Don't think I'll be returning.
Nice surprises at each dish. Super fast service! Friendly staff service us! I really Loved it ! I will clearly come back or recommend this place !
Good service, however portion of the food was not suffice for me. Perhaps is the main i chose, other than that the fusion food is pretty nice.
Unique interior design with character. Staff were friendly and service was good. Yam Rosti was almost perfect! Would visit again to try other dishes in future.
Atmosphere was good but slightly squeezy. Food was decent but a little too pricy, we used the entertainer app so that got us a better deal.
Great food and atmosphere, portions could be a little bit larger for the prices charged. Impressive array of options for gluten and dairy free restaurant.
Good customer service, nice ambience and food. Waitress was helpful in explaining menu options and alternative dish when one of the item was not available.
The concept of the restaurant is amazing. The staffs are very friendly and kind. Atmosphere is good and quiet for spending time on a date.
