I recently went to this place for lunch. The more time passed, the more apparent the horrors of this place became. What may have looked like a charming interior at a very superficial first glance turned out to be a musty and neglected back room, complete with horrific curtains, pointless pictures of English gentlemen, and the occasional deceased light bulb. A 20 year old air conditioner provided the soundtrack for this extremely disappointing lunch. To make things worse, the food turned out to be on pretty much the same level. The "roasted duck" was served on a nightmarish turret of mashed carrots and dried up spinach, previously frozen no doubt, with a side of something suspiciously close to barbecue sauce. The omelette was average at best. Needless to say, it was hopelessly overpriced. I'm sure the same quality of food can be found at any university dining hall for one third of the price.
