Poor food, had to wait too long, after the main course we got immediately the bill without even ask if we wanted a dessert. The waiter was terrible. No tip at all. Terrible price/quality ratio. Avoid if possible.

I've eaten there once a week for the past year and the Spicy beef in Lemon grass sauce (#68 on the menu) is the best dish I've ever eaten. The service displayed by a courteous staff allows for a great dining experience. Highly recommended!

I came for lunch one weekday, and had to wait by the door 4 or 5 minutes before anyone came to seat me. I was brought water a few minutes after I was seated, but wasn't asked if I wanted anything else to drink. Finally...More
