Reopening Guidelines

Social distancing of 6 feet between dining tables .

In order to provide room for food services, our present capacity (without any exception) is 25 tables with maximum of 6 people per table.

Sitting capacity is 150 people.

Tables will be in fixed locations and only the entire hall can be rented with 50% discount.
