Sand on the floor, tables are low to the ground and space is tight. But the food is great. you eat with your hands. must have a reservation for this spot. Popping in doesn't work!

For sure you ll hve enough to eat with the mixed plate. The food is really tasty (chicken is spicy...) And there is a real great variety! The service was really nice and the waiters really smily... Hard to not recommend!

This is a must try food! Wash your hands and say goodbye to fork and knife! It is so delicious that you may bite your fingers. My advice: If you're a food lover, or a food adventurer, you must try this restaurant!
