Yes, the volume's loud- yes, it's pretentious but yes, the food is great. Never though I'd eat raw beef - fantastic! Go there. And also I left my phone on the table and the waiter ran after us - thanks!

Did you mention the restaurant's name in your review? Because I tried that, and the name is viewed as a curse word. So when I removed the name my review was approved 😊
