    Good group of people. Good for my Chinese. Maybe the noisy atmosphere was a bit of a drawback.

      Tom - thanks for the comment. I agree about the atmosphere - unfortunately I missed your comment about the green bar - which sounded like it might have been a more peaceful place. Will try there next week
