This restaurant was great! Our server was super helpful, and very friendly!! You can choose the level of spice on most main dishes, which is always a plus. I can highly recommend this place.

Restaurant staff were very helpful. I am gluten free and they made sure that the chef was aware of this to prepare the food. I would have known if this was not the case. Food was delicious.
