Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

By far some of the best meals of our trip. Food was amazing, great variety and the service was amazing. We were lucky enough to get to come here for both the ala cart menu and hot pot. SPECIAL THANKS TO Uditha who not only...made each and every dinner special, but also went out of his way to make sure our 1 year old had everything she needed at all times. He made us feel welcomed and special and is a rock star and we will never forget the hotpot feast he set up for us. Def ask for him when you go! We cannot wait to come back.More
