It's always fun to find something unexpected this good. The food is tasty with huge portions, (salmon kabob had 6 big chunks), served with house salad, rice, and a foccaccia-like bread. Our server was very cheerful and humorous.

Very good food. Good portions. Too much rice. Good service. Nice ambiance. Very reasonable prices. If you like a Chablis the full carafe for $19.95 is a great deal
