Foods are tasteless but inexpensive. Severs try hard to be funny with inappropriate jokes. I found uncooked rice grains and undercooked meat.

The title says it all. The staff are attentive. The food is great. The plates are large. Try a variety and if you're not sure the chef may be able to whip the dish anyways. Best in the area period.

Came on recommendations of reviewers and found food to be chewy, unflavored and service poor. Owner/manager was heard yelling at employees. Waitress did not get order correct. Overall would not return or recommend.
