I was reluctant at first because it was sort of too casual but then we ate our food and it was excellent. They had games and we played battleship while eating. The people were friendly.

The food had great flavor. Very creative selections. Everything was super fresh; you could tell it wasn’t pre-made. They had an unexpected large order so it might have taken a little longer than usual but we enjoyed our beer and the vibe. Good beer choices.

Passing through the area on a cold evening I ordered the mushroom soup, the Chana masala bowl and the turmeric smoothly. They were all excellent. As noted by others the place is small and not too comfortable but the food was first rate.

Had the most amazing Tempe Rueben with Kale Salad. Really thoughtful, flavorful vegetarian food. However the restaurant is tiny with tiny tables. Luckily the night was warm so we sat outside and enjoyed the local ambiance. The waitress taking orders at the register (there is...More
