First of all, it’s quite a small place, seating about 20-30 persons likely. It makes it that much more special that on a busy sunday evening, they gave my wife, toddler of 8 months (who obviously doesnt eat) and me a full fricking table that...More

Talk about delicious food! The spicy beef bowl was to die for. I came back two days in a row for it- perfect winter dish. The IPAs I could drink all day, they have a delicious selection and all the drinks are on point.

We were looking for somewhere for lunch and came across this place - we went in only because it had a free table. Glad we made that choice! We had ramon noodle curry and a bison burger - both were excellent! Loved the casual ambience....More

In a very commercial tourist heavy town it can be hard to find good food and hard to tell if a restaurant is busy because it’s good or because people are hungry and desperate. We waited close to an hour for a table here but...More
