From all the great reviews this restaurant gets we expected better. The restaurant is cramped with way too many tables for the space. The food was only average with small portions and it was quite expensive. The service was slow and not that friendly.More

A rum baba is not made with a doughnut. The texture of the dough is denser. It was not stale as we make them fresh daily. Perhaps Krispy Kreme is more your thing.
