    I ordered oxtail. It was cooked to perfection but lacked taste. Incredibly bland and boring… doesn’t justify the price

    The potatoes were not fully cooked. But the pork belly was amazing!! I expected a bit better though. But the service and atmosphere was great and my date really enjoyed her meal.
