Four of us went to this restaurant. It was good food simple. The best deal is the first page where two can eat. The waitress is not fluent in English and it took a while to understand this. The menu is overwhelming with so much...More

To be honest I am not a big fan of vegetarian food when it tries to be like a meat dish. After my visit to this restaurant I have changed my mind. Through skillful use of herbs and spices each dish was delicious. Sauces and...More
