I last visited this restaurant in Dec.2012, when I wrote the review and it was great.. I revisited this place in March 2014, and what a disappointment it was!! Dirty, unclean plates - long used and with scratches, terrible spoons, soup bowls. Overall didnt seem hygenic, was cluttered. The toilets were dirty and crammed. The tables were not so clean....
