From Previous Party Hosts

We met some friends from Melbourne while we were staying in the City. What a little gem it turned out to be. It was a Monday night and the place was very popular. Decor is very eclectic. Service was prompt and the meals extremely satisfying. And we certainly couldn’t complain about the price. All in all a great place to go.
