Totally surreal restaurant with random things on the wall. Food was good, service was quick and efficient and most of all, the prices weren't extortionate. Would definitely visit again.

The food was good. (not great) My son loved the cool stuff on the walls and the big train coming out of the ceiling. We had a good time. We would go back.
