Went there about 8.30pm. Not many people. The place is easy to find. Staff are courteous and friendly. They will cook and cut the meat for you. Tasty and nice. Will revisit.

I have Bern there with my wife. Food was very good! Only disapointing point was, that they have given US the feeling to hurry up, because more guests have Bern waiting. Apart from that, perfect!
