An oasis among fast food and chain restaurants. Visiting from CA, I was quite impressed with the menu and the meal cannot get more authentic. Owner is a lovely woman who prides herself on making sure her customers enjoy themselves.

Visited for a lunch buffet. The food is very good, for a fair price, and the service was top notch. The staff are all so friendly, warm, and inviting. Will definitely be back!
