Lonely Planet review
The menu promises a range of world cuisines. None taste quite like the originals, but that’s forgivable given the relatively reasonable prices and the attractive low-key decor with wrought-iron chairs, mock beamed ceilings and little spice-bottle alcoves. It’s behind Aqua Java coffee shop.
