Jaanchie is the owner and "he" is the menu. He will come to your table, sit with you, and go over the menu items. You have no idea what anything costs but that's ok because it was worth the experience. The food was good but...More

I don't know for sure. When we went it was open from about 12 o'clock until about nine in the evening. I think they are open every day.
