Very close to the Doubletree and Wyndham Hotels. Although the restaurant is usually one third full, don't let that stop you from dining here. All food is cooked to order and fresh. And authentic. Many choices and selections. Service is prompt and friendly.

The location is good as it is close to The Double Tree Hotel. The atmosphere is comfortable, clean and accommodating. Limited Wine Selection and the menu is fairly extensive and the Kitchen is willing to comply to Favorite Dishes.
