To allow convenient family dining, the eatery has a long communal table in the middle of the shop to sit larger groups.

This is flanked by smaller dining tables to accommodate smaller groups of diners.

Towards the back near the kitchen is a high bar table which could sit another group of people.

All in all, the vibes of the restaurant seem to be conducive for communal dining, something most of us have dearly missed since Circuit Breaker.
