    Dear Oku We have never eaten at a Asian restaurant before and was nervous to do so but we where pleasantly surprised. Peter took us though your menu step by step and explained all your dished to us and made such a effort to make us feel relaxed. Our son is not a adventurous eater at all and he enjoyed trying all the new meals. Your food is fresh and full of flavor! We will definitely see you again soon! Regards Mercia

    Acoustics are terrible. We could not hear each other. You should consider adding sound-absorbing ceiling panels.

    With only 2 tables occupied in the restaurant it would be better to use tables that are not next to each other. Seared tuna was excellent but I felt that it needed something crispy in the dish - perhaps a bit of shredded, grilled seaweed on top. Caramel on the cheesecake desert needed a bit more intensity - but still excellent.
