No polite or friendly greeting upon entering the restaurant. Disorganized. The staff seem to cater to their own.

Meal prices range prices are large....from 6 - 20 dollars. But if you stick with the half chicken you'll be around 10 bucks. Service was very quick and food was delivered in a quick manner. Obviously go with chicken if it's your first time. One...More
