The food and the service were excellent! I had a vegetarian plate and it was delicious. The atmosphere was quiet and peaceful, much needed after long travel.

We enjoyed an appetizer and shared the chef's special combination, which was a sampler of some of the most popular dishes. The server did a great job explaining the dishes. We were so full when we left!

Don't be fooled by this place's exterior. The food and service is amazing, not to mention reasonably priced. You eat the food with your hands using bread as a barrier so not elegance eating but we didn't mind. We tried the sampler starter and the...More
