Two hours before our reserved time, I had to call to cancel because the hotel staff was not able to find a taxi for us. The owner of the restaurant was kind to find us a taxi. We were happy we made it.

This is such a cool place--definitely worth the effort to reserve well ahead of time. Every dish on the elaborate set menu is a revelation.
