Visiting Philadelphia with a friend. After being seated right away, the staff seemed to forget we were there. Appetizer finally served. No setup until I asked. No service until someone bussing a nearby table noticed we may have a problem. Didn't get anyone to come...More

We landed on Christmas night looking a place to eat and this was the only place open. Lucky us because we found excellent food at very reasonable prices all of 13th street. Highly recommended is the spicy eggplant and Thai basil rice.

Bartender makes a great Belvidere martini, get the olives... Spciy variants even ordering the beef dish (not normally spicy), jazzes up the meal. Not to expensive for the amount of food. Shrimp appetizer is awesome, served lightly fried with hot mustard glazing.
