If you have a very narrow palate then you might want to choose another restaurant. But if you are open to new flavors, textures and combinations then this is the place. Delicious. Friendly service. But be warned - service is slow. I think it is...More

We stopped by after going to the State Fair and didn't know what to expect. This is a small storefront restaurant with table service. Each of our party ordered something different, and we were all pleased with each dish. The food was outstanding and the...More
