This was our second visit. The food was as good as we remembered from our first visit. The portions are large. It will be a regular spot for us on our stop overs in Cambridge.

Came here for a weekday lunch, and had a really enjoyable wrap with pork, spices, and beans. Staff are friendly and had very great service from a waitress named Kelly. Would go back!
