I came here with my family. It was very good and we would come back again. The restaurant had a wide variety of choices with some unique dishes. The restaurant uses organic ingredients that are fresh. Everything that we got was good.

Don't know the exact number, but many. You might want to check out their website menu. My wife did all of the legwork. The restaurant is known for its natural food selections.
