A group of us went for dinner on a Thursday night and had a great experience. Every time we go the food and service are always amazing. So much flavour and something different for Burlington. Would certainly be back!

New place to eat for us, definitely a new favourite. Waitstaff knowledgeable about the menu and extremely helpful with assisting us in our choices. Portions are large, maybe too much? Had the trio dips with an order of the bread suggested by our waitress, nice...More
