Here is our Christmas Day Take out menu.
pre order and 50% deposit is necessary.
Happy Christmas everyone

Dear Customers.

Unfortunately we need to cancel our Christmas dinner on Christmas Day (the 25th)

Christmas is different this year, as we keep being told.

We have lots of bookings already. We were hoping that things will get better for the Christmas Period, and we can do our traditional Christmas Day Dinner, but numbers are still don't look good, and it just doesn't feel safe to let lots of people dine in same time.

we just simply cant guaranty social distancing in a fully booked restaurant, and we cant do 3 course meal in 45Minutes as the government recommendation for customers only staying 45 minutes in restaurant.

We still will be open on Christmas Day from 12-3Pm but only for Take Out This Year.
Hopefully from next year we will go back to normal, or just a bit close to normal, and we can Continue our traditional Christmas Dinner the way we always do.

We are apologizing to any inconvenience but our customers and staff well being is our number one priority.

Have a Safe and Happy Christmas, Stay Home, and order Take Out This Year.
We will post Our Take Out Christmas Menu as soon as it possible.
