Get to this place as often as possible. The specials really are.......not just something they need to get rid of. Chef may change occasionally but all are able to compete with the best.

Waited over an hour for food. Nothing against the food itself, however the service is absolutely terrible. I do not recommend if you are in a hurry or don't have an entire afternoon to spare.
