Wonderful family run restaurant! Lunches are particularly economical and it is one of our favorite places to eat in Lincoln. The staff is friendly, food is great and the servings are large. I almost always take half of my food home.

Don't let the outside chase you away, it's a dumpy strip mall. Service was prompt, pleasant. Food was very good, portions are large. Attentive wait staff. Nice surprise for this area.
