If you’ve seen a movie, visited the arcade or had a whirl on our play area, the kids (and you) would have surely worked up an appetite. Luckily, we have plenty of options available.

Grab a table at one of our cafes or restaurants and sink your teeth into a mouth-watering burger at Mcdonald's, enjoy a taste of Indin cuisine at Mumbai Express or indulge in delicious smoothie or juice from Tank.

If you’re simply looking to caffeinate, enjoy a cup from The Coffee Club, Muffin Break, Cova or Epiphany Cafe.
