We went here with a local resident who knows the place from when it was a shack so I went to share that memory. The interior has improved from that visual. We were in the area in the evening and it was packed and loud which isn't our thing. We ended up sitting at a raised table near the door which was a little awkward. The sun had already set but there is a limited view anyway. The waiter did make an effort and was nice but difficult to flag down. I ordered the smaller sized salad which worked out great for me. My meal was pretty much the same thing I'd get at one of the local health food stores at 3x the price. I felt it was pricey for the experience but this area does seem to be lots of tourists as it is right down the street from big hotels. On a positive note they did have healthy options (edamame, tofu) for vegetarians/vegans but you have to ask and manipulate the menu a bit to have a salad meal.
