Always pass by this establishment, but decided to stop this time. So glad I did !! Food was fantastic (had the "Jacobs Ladder" ribs and stir fry). Can't believe I've been passing for so long!! I can imagine I will be stopping more often!! You need to too !! Very clean and modern. Staff are excellent.

Enjoyed a wonderful family meal here. Great food and very friendly helpful staff. Obviously very well-trained as they were all young but knew exactly how to treat customers. The place was really nicely decorated for Easter too. We will definitely return. 5 stars!!💥💥💥💥💥

Really enjoyed our meal here on a busy Saturday night. Service was a little slow but that wasn't a problem. Gave us time between courses. Staff very friendly and efficient. We had 2 vegetarians in our group of 5. They were really impressed with their dishes. Food was piping hot and very tasty. Would go again if in the area.
