Sly Granny – Community House

Sly Granny is a Community House that started with the purpose of letting people gather and relax over some great food & drinks. The cosy ambiance lets everyone relax and unwind.  Just like how we would feel when we go to our granny’s place.   A place that always reminds use of great food, freedom, play areas and some house rules.  I personally loved to spend my holidays at granny’s place and never want to go back home.  The restaurant also has many of things that can let any guest coming in to feel welcome and enjoy the experience.IMG_20170731_202423
