It was a royal treat fed by the royalty herself. However, despite the recipes being from the royal kitchen, Manzie’s dishes are not heavy, are low on oil, have a bouquet of delicate flavours and the portions are not very large, in fact just right. Mine was a memorable evening there which I feel is a beginning.
