Cute place, nice cook/waitress/host and delicious food that is well priced. I had the veal steak in red wine and my partner had curry chicken, both came with all the trimmings in a sizeable portion. Would definitely recommend!

I highly recommend having lunch or dinner here. The ambience is warm and inviting... just like being in your mom's kitchen. Everything here is freshly prepared in front of your eyes. The chicken curry was delightful with grilled vegetables on the side, the chicken and...More
