Increible! Calidad-precio super recomendable. Sishar, un camarero nepalí genial. Todo lo ofrecido, buenísimo. Volveríamos 100.000 veces. Unforgettable! Price-quality advisable. Sishar, a waiter coming from Nepal, very friendly. Everything he offered was very tasty. We would come again 100.000 times.
