Lentil soup was barely warm. Cold lamb, the tagine it was served in was cold too. Gin and tonic was served with no ice and no lime, the bartender was lost in space. Pita bread was dry, tasted like it was a week old. Service...More

One of the worst service we ever had. More than one hour just to get the appetizers, no working bathrooms (the staff would take you to another restaurant to use their bathrooms) and the worst waitress we have ever seen. We were a big group...More

The price tag was never discuss upfront since the menus were taken away quickly as the waiter pushed the table d'hote on us. Appetizers were average in taste, the main meal, the chicken tarrine tasted very salty in a brown commercial gravy. At best, this...More
