This place has a great outdoor "garden" in the back. Particular in the evenings it's nice. Not much light to read the menu, though! Can be loud of music at times, depending on the night/event. Food is ok, nothing special. Not really cheap. Service can be good or bad, depends on the time and mood of the waiter. It seems... More

Loved the outdoor seating, good service, nice hummus and apps, however, our chicken skewers were not fully cooked... This is such a turnoff and ruined an other wise great experience. They have a big menu, and our drinks were great, but uncooked chicken is not acceptable. I would be willing to give it another shot but may go vegetarian!
