It's great to have a good restaurant open on a Sunday night, hidden above the heart of Salamanca via ugly stairs. Great soft shell crab and yum green curry – plenty of tasty food options. Great fast service, all dishes good.

Prices are outrageous and food ordinary at best. The calamari in particular was grossly overpriced and of terrible quality. Would certainly not return.

Had decent memories of this place a few years ago - what it lacked in good quality it made up for in affordability. Not this time. Went in with 2 couples and to say I was underwhelmed would be an understatement. Paid $11 for 6...More

The decor appears a little out dated, but only adds to the charm of the place. All meals are tasty and the servings are large. You wont leave hungry, or broke. Prices are more than reasonable, especially the lunch menu. Wine list is basic with...More
