    Great meal and a fun restaurant. Great spiciness, huge portions, clean location, good wine and great music in the background. What more can you want?

    Way above expectations. Friendly service, great food, cool atmosphere. Would have loved some hot tea on the menu; but otherwise all was good. Highly recommend! 👍

    Food was good and ambiance was nice. Tight tables, not great for big parties. Hot inside and no full bar.
