Overall, a very nice restaurant experience. The food was good, and one could see it being freshly made. Tea is the obvious drink to have with this sort of food, especially at lunch time, and it's cheap and cups are refilled over and over. I do have a few grumbles. Probably the one that will strike most people is that apart from a few proper tables and chairs at the front the rest of the seating is rather bizarre. Rather than having chairs raised above the floor level, the tables are recessed below floor level. So one sits on the floor, with one's legs resting in a cavity below floor level, and the table sits at the proper height despite appearing to be impossibly low. Cushions are provided. Whilst this looks very cool, it is impractical for a number of reasons. First, it's awkward to get down to floor level, and even more awkward to get up again (and I am still fairly young and very fit); secondly, bags, coats, etc, cannot go under the table/over the back of a chair, so must sit next to one on the floor; thirdly, I had to demonstrate as conspicuously as possible to my lunch companion that I was not taking the opportunity to look up her dress when she got up at the end of lunch. The next complaint is the service. For one thing, not all of the staff really spoke English very well, which was difficult when it came to asking questions about the menu. A bigger annoyance was that the waitress tried to persuade us to order much more food than we wanted or needed. We stood our ground, more or less, and ordered as much as we thought we needed, which proved to be if anything a bit too much. I should explain that I hardly have a small apetite for lunch, and that had we ordered as much food as our waitress suggested it would have been close to twice as much as either of us could bring ourselves to eat. These complaints aside, though, it was nice, and I'd go there again for the good food and reasonable cost.
