Make reservation! that is the most important thing for this restaurant! The size of the food portion is huge, so there is no issue to share. Overall, I believe that it is always full due to the price vs the portion size.

Although the figures are big, the portion of the food is big too!

They usually have weak connection so... put down all gadgets and socialize! Easy to find :)
