This was all I was looking forward to all day at work. It was an anti-climax. It had all the trimmings of a great seafood platter, but for the price , I expected better. The prawns were a little tasteless, dry and required alot of dipping into the sauces. However, the towering presentation was great.
Dessert: No room for it
Bring a date here? Yes
Night out with friends here? eh
