What a piece of architecture. The minar is breathtaking. Iconic! Do go early morning before everyone is up. :)
We ordered the duck too share only 3 pancakes each and the duck overcooked plus a chocolate taste sauce very strange taste, ask if any other sauce or dip said yes tomato sauce no duck sauce? We said we like some sweet potato fries these came in a flower pot this look good but a portion for £4 each no way. Sorry very disappointed, staff good and helpful would be nice if they all had a uniform as they look like they came from the pub / public area?? Anyway it's a nice feel to the restaurant but disappointed of the food.
