“nice atmosphere, but watch the bill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

We had a nice meal in a lovely setting. Very nice staff and no long waiting time. But the bill! Price changed between the menu and the bill. Tip was added. Suddenly no waiter around.

“Ok but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

Drinks are expensive. Service charge is added. Food is okay but expensive. Atmosphere is nice, location can't be beat.

You might think you can get a cheap lunch by ordering the crepes but by the time you add in your beverages and your service charge it's expensive.

“Poor service, average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

Lots of mistakes with orders, for more tables around us too. Long waiting time, long waiting for the bill, quite high price.
Interior looks nice (quasi authentic oriental), but a bit dirty.

“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

The menu prices low but the portions are not terribly large so it can add up.

It's near a large number of attractions and is a nice place to sit in the afternoon -- rest your weary feet, enjoy a snack, and perhaps play a game of checkers or backgammon.

The food was good but not great.

The staff were not terribly attentive.

“Relaxing Atmoshere, Friendy Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

It looks like a nargile cafe for locals and thus is very cheep. Still, nargile is good and staff is very friendly. Perfect to spend an evening smoking, drinking apple tea and playing backgammon.
