We walked in on a Sunday night,without a reservation,and got a nice booth. The waitstaff seemed preoccupied, and this was true all through the meal, even when we were clearly finished and no one came to ask about a bill or left overs. We ordered...More

The service was great and what I did eat I enjoyed. They accommodated my need for mild seasoning. My friend enjoyed her food but found the mild seasoning to be pretty spicy..
