Dined here for the first time this past Saturday and liked it a lot. The service was good from beginning to end. The food was cooked perfectly with just the right spice level. We will definitely return.

The bad service began when we were escorted silently to our table by a gesture-no greeting. We sat there for fifteen minutes without anyone saying a word, though a waiter did drop off a menu, again, silently. When he finally came to take our order,...More
