I never thought I would say this about a place which used to be Abacus, but it is actually pretty great!

It helped that my friend and I went there on a Monday for dinner - it had a few people around, but not crowded.

I liked the differently styled seating areas - so you can choose which 'ambiance' you want to have when you're dining. The service was good and the food was really good!
