Dear valuable customers:


We open at night time (5-8pm) on Monday now.

Due to our suppliers holiday closures and shortage of staff, we are unable to provide the same varieties of foods and the same quality of service as usual during the holiday season, sadly our All You Can Eat night will be suspended from 27/12/2021 till further notice. It has been a hard decision to make, we appreciate your understanding. Follow us on Facebook to find out the opening date for next All You Can Eat night, we are looking forward to see you soon.
