The restaurant is nice and clean, the staff is very welcoming. The food itself is a bit tasteless and pricey. the portions are really big and satisfying.

Me and my boy came here for a meal, to celebrate his 14th birthday. I can honestly say I haven’t had a steak like that in a long time. Absolutely beautiful. Would highly recommend you will not be disappointed. ?

Visited this restaurant recently and the experience has been amazing. The ambience, food portions size, and the taste were great and meeting the expectations. They also offered us a delicious pizza on the house.Pricing too was fine.Definitely visiting again.
