You can try lots of different foods at the same time, all very tasty and they had several vegan options (plus deserts) and can make more if you call in advance. Efficient service and nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Will go again!

The food was okay, nothing spectacular and you could taste that it was not very fresh. The waiter also had difficulty with my boyfriends nut allergy... Fortunately it all went well but if you have a severe allergy I do not suggest you go there.
