Service is friendly and attentive. The food is fresh with good portions. Kitchen can be a bit slow. Above all the joint has a good vibe with a diverse clientele. I recommend it.

The restaurant is not a luxurious one, is simple. The food is nice and fast, no long waiting time. The the service is bad. Looks like they have no training. The response is slow.
