We were hesitant because of some bad recent reviews, but we were very surprised to find that the food was actually excellent ! They were prepared with care, nice mix of spices and seasoning, very well made food. Highly recommended !!

I love the food here and the drinks are awesome. The place is on the smaller side so it is often crowded. Can be a bit noisy at times. A band plays there sometimes and are very good.

Ten of us went out for my birthday dinner. Service was great, food was delicious! The band had a "personal emergency" and cancelled for the night. We all are and drank in the party atmosphere.
