Our waiter Marlon was very well versed, knowledgeable and attentive, he really impressed us.

For starters we went on Marlon’s recommendation and chose the Tom Yum and the Tomato Salad. Jason loved the Tom Yum and was really enjoying the meaty ravioli. I will however say they should perhaps drop the beetroot from the name as its really more of a tomato salad.

Mains we had the Seas Bass and the Springbok Loin, both very good and I have it on good authority that you can taste the sugar coat…

Sadly, due to a family emergency we were unable to enjoy our dessert and once again Marlon raised to the occasion and rushed with our bill and getting us out.

All in all, a good evening…emergencies included.
