Opposite used to be the Garden Hotel, where I went carolling in the mid-1990s.
The restaurant isn't much to shout about though. The 'roast chicken' was mediocre (though at $14.80 with soup, a scoop of ice cream [with lots of ice crystals] and a cup of tea) at least
The oxtail stew was good though. Which was why 3 people at another table all ordered it.
If you look around, the buildings around are all high-rise. So this place's fate is assured.
