Cant believe how awful the food, service and place is. Food portions are very generous but it is so over cooked and greasy you cant eat much anyway.

We came to this restaurant... More

We came here for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was mostly empty but the staff was very attentive. The food came out slowly... More

My third attempt to have Spare Ribs... my order was taken and 15 minutes later I was informed that spare ribs were not available! (Zero communication between Kitchen Chef - service personnel - cashier??) The food I ordered was was a insipid mush of soya sauce mixed with water, kankun a soggy mess, and most probably deep fried pork and... More

I found the taste of the food average compared for the food from Flower drum Colombo, which is the same franchise.. I had heard great deal about hot butter cuttle fish but it was not crispy when served to us..

Food was good, they proactively made a special noodle for my daughter without any spice and I appreciate fresh juice. Portions were generous.
