Terrible place. Go never, if you want to have a nice dinner and evening. We found this restaurant via Tripadvisor. But actually there was not clean. We can not understand menu. It is difficult to call it a restaurant. It is look like a canteen.

Unpretentious, delicious, personable. Service is great and food is tasty while also being creative. Tip: sit at bar to chat with bartender and get a great view of restaurant and kitchen.

So glad I went back. My old neighborhood restaurant is still great. We shared and still had leftovers to take home. Maybe because we tried the bread with spread. Warm salad with potatoes was memorable. Fried chicken was moist. Service friendly and relaxed. Overall excellent!
