We had a dinner for two and had a few beef plates and a couple of starters. The spicy cabbage was a good way to get your belly ready for grilled meat. The best was the beef intestine as it was incredibly fatty and marinated...More

This is ten times I have lunch or dinner here. Great food always. However, no wifi is a big let down. Correction. Wifi is not reserved fir the managers, not the guests who directly pay for their salaries. Another negative. Our party has eight guests....More

Very nice time for birthday brunch with family and friends. Enjoyed the surf and turf for 4 and a few other entrees. Beef tongue for one was good. Everything was solid with quality ingredients and flavor. Although you can add sauces (sweet soy, spice, citrus)...More
