I don’t even know how to begin this review. The experience has left me shook. The manager was extremely rude since the minute we sat down and declined my friend’s request to get an appetizer only since she wanted to share her food with me....More

Food is really tasty! Quick service. The place is small and feels a bit to much, but it's nice to have experienced it!

Tips are optional. You are not entitled to a tip if the service is awful. We pay for the food. Never coming here again. I watched as other customers were being treated unfairly and disgusted by what I saw.More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
