    Food was excellent as usual. Service was fine, no issues. Finally this time there were no menu items out of stock, so that was good. But did not like the ambience because the room we were seated in was very bright, and the music too loud. Unfortunately both those things sort of ruined the experience this time. Didn’t stay too long, but we got all the items we wanted and food excellent. We will of course be back.

    No washroom! For a busy restaurant like this, atleast there must be a spare one that customer can use for emergency. They said their washroom is needed to be fixed, so maybe it will be? But while we were there for 2 hours, no washroom is a bit much considering the amount of people visiting the restaurant. My mom is elderly and she needed it.

    Meal was going well until a fire broke out in the restaurant. The staff definitely could have handled the situation better as they didn’t advise the patrons there was a fire until we were out the door. My friend noticed the servers all running in one direction and popped out of her seat to check what was going on. We grabbed our bags and made a quick exit. A lot of patrons didn’t even know there was a fire. Thankfully everyone escaped in time.
