The service was acceptable but the food was unique and very good. We got in late from our day and were open until 10 pm.

Usually I stop in once a year for something spicy. The atmosphere is ok and the staff is friendly and you ask for spicy, you get spicy. Good for takeout too.

This restaurant has been in existence for at least several years. The telephone number is Ireland area code and 095-22619. Three employees and about 20 tables. Pretty good set up. Will write a generally positive review of the diner we had.
