The restaurant was surprisingly jam-packed with a lot of customers , despite it was a weekday . We also liked the light bulbs within the restaurant premises . The complimentary cold water had a lemon zest , thereby intensifying its taste .
The interior had a sitting capacity of about 50 to 60 persons at any given time , The outdoor area have another 50 to 60 sitting capacity .
