Our group of 9 seniors loved this restaurant. Not always easy for 9 people to be very happy with their meals, but this was great. Lots of variety for everyone. Good service, good food. I don't think you can go wrong. Deserves its high rating.

We've lived in the area for close to ten years and have always heard the Red Onion wax good, but have never gone. We finally went and were pleasantly surprised by how good everything was. The carrot ginger soup was excellent as was the Arugala...More
