Great food and an even better atmosphere. You will enjoy every minute. Always busy so be prepared to wait, but well worth it.

Interesting place! Lots of "stuff" everywhere, all mismatched place settings and the staff wear pajamas. Can be very crowded and if so, it's tight almost sitting on top of each other.
