We were here a few times. The food is good, service is good as well. I can recommend a kebab, tandoori chicken and grilled veggies. Not much to add, just go and check it out - you won't be disappointed.

I was subject to complete fraud. They charged me x3 of the ordinary price. When I noticed they of course had one of their hit-men at the table. Needless to say I just paid the bill.
