This was a very enjoyable evening out. The food was great - portions were very large (lots of leftovers to take home); service was terrific; atmosphere was very different from your usual dining experience (in a good way). I recommend you give it a try!

I have a raw onion allergy and they were able to deal with that accurately. I've been there a good amount of times and I do not recall there being nuts in any of their dishes.
