I would have to say my overall experience was relaxing and mind gazing, in a way that I kinda thought of myself as an artist inside Troika's Restaurant.

Everything is inside the restaurant no..... 
You get to dine...
You get to listen to live bands and get to play the instruments as well...
You get become an artist by painting a canvas which is readily available to purchase...
You get to take selfierific photos inside from the different arts....
And best of all you get to pay what your money deserves and all worth it...
Plus get to enjoy with your friends, classmates, lovers and family...
