This restaurant is a cozy little place that is consistently packed. If you are a group, or even more than 2ppl, it may be hard to get a table. Expect a wait - and don't trust that they will call you because they will give the table away if they have people waiting. They also don't take reservations. So, if you can get a table, you will love the food. It's creative and delicious. However, they also don't like to do takeout - so, it's just eat in.

Great atmosphere, small space but fast, delicious food, great service - kids loved that the kitchen seemed bigger than the seating & they loved the chicken skewers, fries, naan bread & dips. Price was decent too with the quality of food. Will definitely be back.

Excellent food and friendly, cosy atmosphere. Food comes out quickly and is very delicious! Highly recommend the ramen. They also have a nice wine selection.

Nice atmosphere, food good, but the staff were not very engaged or particularly friendly. We kind of felt unwanted and not sure why. We asked about gluten free options as my spouse is celiac. Not sure if this perhaps inconvenienced them a bit? The service was not terrible, just not friendly. Also gluten free options quite limited so for those looking for gluten free, you may want to eat elsewhere.
