This restaurant closed down already. Which is unfortunate given that it was not half bad. Another restaurant, Rusticana, now stands in its place. Hopefully, they reopen in another location sometime...

We had our breakfast here for two mornings and the place is not commercialized and its just like dining at home with relatives. Though they have limited menu, I still liked the feeling of comfort it gave us.
