Overall the food that I've tried here were not bad, like our home-cooked food, but nothing outstanding. The dessert buffet was quite disappointing. To me, it looks better than it taste.. The quality of their desserts were mostly below average, not much variety and none of them was memorable. So with this price of $39++ per person, I felt the price is not on par with the quality. They really need to improve in their dessert quality and quantity. This explains why the restaurant was quite empty on a Saturday, only some additional walk-in and tourists came halfway during the lunch.

Service was very good. Plates were cleared regularly and water was refilled promptly too.

I really like the cosy ambience here, it's a pity that the food and desserts were not outstanding. Hope they can improve to make me go back again......
