Teppei Japanese Restaurant

 photo PA098657.jpg
I have wanted to dine here since a year ago but I always missed the reservation date. So when 3rd August came, I finally remembered and called in at 10.30am and I actually managed to get through by 10.37. Only seven minutes. I felt like I was the luckiest person on earth especially when I realised how some have called for hours and not get through. I made a reservation for 4 and I had been counting down to this day ever since!
