This place was crowded. I'm not sure if that was due to steak night or what, but we were stuck in "monkey corner" which is ironically the one table I would say to avoid. Yes, you see the monkeys until the sun goes down, at...More

Very dirty. Service was poor. Very old facility that was not well maintained. Would not recommend this as a nice place to eat.
