Authentic, great taste. Went there a year ago with a group of friends and we tried many of the dishes as we shared. Very copious though, but delicious!

Went with my wife and son. Food was nice but not 100% authentic like grandma's cooking. Service was good and the restaurant decor was lovely. It is best to mix the dishes, makes the meal more interesting with a variety of flavours.

No parking outside the restaurant, and I is a little difficult to spot( but well worth it), parked on a square about 100 yards away.
