Great service and a neat tidy up of the delicious seafood special. The buffalo wings were moist and delightful. A great birthday dinner in a convenient location.

Absolutely loved dinner. We had the mud crab combo and it was so good we forgot our truffle fries which were pretty tasty too. Seafood was fresh and flavoursome. Singapore chilli wasn’t too spicy and didn’t lose the flavour of the seafood. We’ll be back, soon!
