loud music, poor service, Mgr said he would turn it down. He didn't. We would have accepted an honest answer that he couldn't in deference to regular patrons. inconsistent food - one meal sent back, two were cold

I ordered the drink special for $5 and that was also good. Then it gets bad. My husband ordered the lam which cost over $25 and was extremely... More

This establishment is nicely appointed with a friendly staff. However, the plaudits end here. Service was extremely slow. We waited 2 hours for our main course and most of the dishes were inedible. They were over-seasoned. The chef was heavy-handed with the pepper thus, in my opinion, completely masking the flavor of the dish. The loud Techno music with its... More

It's in the name - you must try the satays, they were by far the best part of our meal. They were pretty good prices considering the size - ample for the two of us when we ordered a mini selection. The meals themselves were quite different - my husband had the meatballs which were great and absolutely delicious. However,... More
