We have been here couple of times, the food is good. But sometimes the place can be crowded and it might take a while until your food is served.

Visited with family, as this was their choice. Found it to be a great little find. Food was beautiful, tasty and really enjoyable. Nice to have a good selection of vegetarian dishes as well. Thanks to the staff.
