  • It certainly a nice visit. The staff were nice, I was being stared at by one employee but they were just doing their job that everything runs smoothly.

  • Victoria is so kind to solve our problem on the admission, recommend this place!
  • Went there for formal dinner party. The art clearly speaks for itself. And the interior allows for awesome pics.
