Very aggressive waiter. Made allot of people unhappy. Waited 30 mins for the bill.. Spoke up 2 times before seeing the manager. Bill did come but very unapologetically

Third time visiting this plase, the food is great if perhaps a bit shy with the spices in my taste, even the spicy sauce is mild in my opinion, but otherwise it is tasty and plenty. Service is good and can handle English. Beer is...More
