Really nice experience. I ordered the vegetarian platter with four types of veggies and a giant plate of rice. My friend had shrimp kabobs, the shrimp were HUGE. The service was great, they even gave us complimentary soup. The food was plated beautifully and service was quick.

We visit this restaurant frequently. It's good for any occasions: small and big. The atmosphere is cozy and unique. Food is excellent. The only negative thing is I wish their waitresses would be a bit faster to serve. Try it!
