We came for lunch on a Saturday noon. The setting is quite modest and the food is not refined but what you get is really good and at a very reasonable price. The staff is very friendly.

We ordered a set menu and it was really worth while and we could order whatever we wanted from the main menu. Everything was excellent. The wine was very good and at a reasonable price. We would surely recommend this place any time!!!

Rude, aggressive waiters who know what you want better than you do. The wine that came with the set menu was terrible, barely suitable to use as cooking wine even. We asked for the wine list to order something drinkable. He wouldn't give it to...More
