Chijmes is usually crowded with patrons and especially whenever they have special events, all restaurants have their own offers. Once I had a chance to visit the place and I was a bit lost because I may not be aware of the place. It was noted that Chijames had various pubs and restaurants inside the vicinity serving various continental foods.

Together with friends, we had our dinner at Table 108. The restaurant offers a wide array of food from mixed Asian to local cuisines mainly Indian, Indochinese, Thai and Vietnamese. Seen also in the Menu were some Italian and American food. At the time of visit, other restaurants in the vicinity were filled with people expecting a World Cup screening. We had several beers and yes, the place was some kind of an outdoor pub. Although I couldn’t remember what food I tastes, I knew it was an upscale one.
