Very slow and unattentive service. We were never asked if everything was ok...it wasn’t. Veggie pita was so bad I brought it home to feed my chickens. Radishes chopped small..not listed in menu. Lots of raw onion, but all veggies so small I couldn’t pick...More

This place is a go-to for quality comfort food; and by saying “comfort food” I’m not implying the menu is not amazing, because it definitely is! The menu has so many great options that it can be difficult to choose, but whatever choice you make...More

I wouldn't consider this a "healthy" Restaurant but more like comfort food. Google and check out the Menu online to get an idea. There's quite a variety of food. Salads are great too. Enjoy!
