I have been coming here for a good 8 years. The garlic veggies are nice. Also when in season there is a crab dish with butter and cheese it's worth the taste. Be careful not to eat your fingers at the same time.

Enjoyed the food, fresh and unassuming, the Calamari in Black Bean Sauce was off the menu and they accommodated us by preparing a great dish with strong hint of ginger, it was really good.

Always dependable with good service. Not as busy as before due to poor economy in SA. Price is still so reasonable and no charge for BYOB! Menu is extensive and best to discuss what to order with owner.
