10 of us from out of town decided to go on a Friday night, at the recommendation of our local friend. They were very accommodating, even for people splitting dishes, the food came quickly and correctly. They do have a limit of 6 separate checks,...More

I was invited to this place. I liked the food there. But I felt the restaurant was a little cramped. The tables were pretty close and that made me a little uncomfortable. Another con was the smell of non-vegetarian food. I go to restaurants that...More
