Interesting trying new cuisine. I ordered the coconut lamb which had interesting flavor. Prices were on the high end and there could have been more lamb in the dish. Staff was very friendly.

Yes we are Halal, but alcohol is being served in this Restaurant. All our meat are bought from a local Islamic Butcher called Kaddour.
