Beautiful restaurant with high ceilings and antique hard wood floors. Many delicious dishes, you can't go wrong. Prices are a little high for the size of the portions. Seating is on the floor. We look forward to coming back.

We had a great dinner here and enjoyed some great food. The banana flower salad, mountain sausage and pigeon mince all tasted very nice and very fresh. They adapated a hot-pot for us to enjoy with two people which was also really good. Recommend!
