Very reasonable portions and prices. Service and food quality were excellent. We also enjoyed eavesdropping on our neighbor's conversation about where in the world to live next.

We were just wandering past and decided to stop for dinner. It was incredible food. We lived in India for a few months last year, so we are fairly picky about our food. This was top notch! Service was great. Staff was very friendly. We...More
