Came here for Mother’s Day, service was fast, food was yummy, can’t really complain. Only minor critique was they needed to bring water once we sat down not after we asked for it

Awkward to get to at the moment if you don't know where the enterance is. Nice layout - seems like a lot of smaller spaces rather than one big area. The food was well cooked and presented. Good value for the portion size and quality....More
