From the moment we walked in the door until we left the service was amazing. The staff was extremely helpful in describing the spices and the cooking techniques. There were three generations at the table and we all enjoyed our meals. We would have preferred...More

My husband and I visited this spot recently for a date night. The location isn't great, and the outdoor seating leaves a bit to be desired, but hey at least they offer outdoor seating. The service was good, and as many people have said, the...More
