I love this place! The food is amazing! Its usually very busy but that is just because its great food. The Asian fusion cuisine is tasty and can be made more spicy with their amazing chilli oil. Well worth a try!

focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
