Why should a couple consider your venue over other venues? 

Beautiful, elegant, unique venue with Asian flair. Various spaces and rooms, catering for a variety of needs and desires. Fantastic service, from a team of professional hospitality staff. Premium food offerings, with again a range of options to suit, be it canapés or a sit down meal.
