This restaurant is the worst I have ever seen. Do not go here. The food is so bad that bugs fly all over it. Almost in every case when more than 5 people came to eat the guy in the restaurant said I can not manage more than 2 and it's beyond my level of work load. It goes to... More

Was very happy to find this restaurant , however the food was a little let down with not too many options and even the ones they had on the menu was a little confused with a little sweet taste in dishes . The portions are quite generous though
