I enjoy this style of restaurant now and then, where you get a hot rock and cook your meat on it yourself. It's quite fun and enjoyable. The restaurant has nice ambience and pleasant staff and it's always nice to visit here.

Had a few couples join us there to indulge in the rump and rib special. Great concept, great service. The (steak) cut was just a rump as the name suggests but we thoroughly enjoyed. Recommended.
