I visited this restaurant with friends a number of times in 2012 when I was in Tawau. The food is generally good though a bit pricey. It is a small place and can be quite crowded. It is a nice place to bring friends for...More

So far, it has the best steak in town (tender and full of flavour). Don't expect your American or Aussie/NZ thick cuts though. Interesting pastas (spicy versions available). They do give you different choices of pasta (not just spaghetti) which is how it should be....More
