Nothing remarkable here on a Saturday night. Waited an hour for a table, quite noisy inside. I had the salmon which was prepared nicely but accompanied by plain and bland black beans and white rice - no seasonings. Bread was good. We were not offered...More

Since specials change probably on a daily basis, you would need to contact the restaurant for that information.
