This was a great experience - a bit shabby in terms of decor, but the food was spectacular and great portion sizes. I had the Shrimp, Yaki, and Chicken with sweet carrots - it was so much food i was able to eat two more meals out of it. My entire family had a great time.

This place is simply amazing, no doubt about it. Whoever doesn't like it has no taste. My favorite restraunt hands down 😍 they're double steak with vegetables is on point. I could seriously live off their food
