This was a great place to have American style food. But, alas, it has disappeared. I hope it will resurface at another location. But I do not know.

When you crave for spicy buffalo wings this is definitely a place to try out. They have juicy burgers and i enjoy their sandwiches as well. Definitely a great hang out spot, and very reasonably priced. Great staff and they can speak English.

Typical American diner food. Their wraps are really good. I'm not a fan of their breakfasts but I know many people who enjoy it. The staff can be absent, so you just have to get their attention constantly. The milkshakes here are also really good.
