My friend and I had such a lovely night, the food and service was amazing. The only thing I would say that the front door was opened quite a lot and we had to get up and close it. It was cold when it was opened. We will definitely be back again.

After long time we couldnt go to eat at the restaurant, we found the same amazing service. They care about people, how we feel, if everything is ok. And what I really appreciated, the two asian ladies workin there, they never said a single words in their language talking together. Only English. This is professional. Thumbs up! I ll be back soon
