It was delivered on time and within budget and in the rules of art!” “confided Javed Vayid to his audience of many business men and women from various sectors of the economy.

For Minister Wong, opening a facility like ‘The Irish’ is of great sociological importance and is of extreme economic importance. He thus recalled the distinction that once existed between foreign tourists and local customers and how economic difficulties have forced hoteliers to rethink their practices to be more open to local customers.
Recalling the journey of the young entrepreneur, Javed Vayid at Les Enfants Terribles, the Minister felt that with The Irish, Javed raised the bar higher this time, offering a place for the local customer “You obtain this local customers other than ready-to-eat and something else ready-to-dance.”
