This restaurant has a huge menu -- there's something for pretty much everyone. They can (and often do) accommodate large groups. There's frequently a wait to get in, but there's generally ample space to wait -- including benches outdoors when the weather's nice. Meals tend...More

There was about 19 of us. Service was outstanding. Food was delicious. I highly suggest this restaurant. It has a very large selection of food. I can’t wait to go back. Maybe this weekend.

Decent food at reasonable prices, however the staff seemed completely unconcerned that customers were there. It was close to my hotel, which was a plus, but I would never go out of my way to get here at this level of service.
