Great service. Nur explained all we needed to know about the menu, being our first time. The dumplings were excellent and the pork belly was my partners favorite. The kimchi starter was an added bonus.

Yes, we can, but let me ask a few questions. Are they staying here with us in the villas or would they just be coming to the restaurant to celebrate? We can of course reserve a table of 7 in the restaurant if they're not... More
