There are 2 sections of the restaurant which 1 part is right in front of the wine room and the inner restaurant which is facing the open kitchen.
The place are ideal for business talk and anniversary celebration where you can choose a bottle of wine or champagne to celebrate anything. Ambiance wise are pretty quiet and not like fast food restaurant which you can barely hear what your guest are talking.
Privacy corner where it is outside the main dining hall. This is the place where not many guest around u. You are pretty secluded and have plenty of privacy.

I am kinda impress with their efficiency here. Such a compact kitchen manned by 4 to 5 chefs and still very well organised. They even have a wood fire oven that use to bake all the breads and pizza. Thumbs up to the lead chef that head this kitchen. You don’t see people bang into each other even working in such a tight place.

For the night, we got a bottle of Church Block Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz-Merlot Mix Red Wine from McLaren Vale, Australia. To my surprise it is pretty easy to drink and goes well with any western foods especially pizza. The wine is fruity with a spicy tinge result from the Shiraz.
