Stopped by for a tej in the late afternoon. Nice place, was really quiet at that time. Can imagine that in evenings you can have a party here. Tej was really good, tasty.

Visited on Sunday late afternoon, so a very quiet time. The service and quality of Tej was excellent. Wish we could have been there in the evening.

Drink honey wine, listen to local singer, and watch or join the dancing. Small place, good atmosphere, not expensive. Recommended.
