I had the chicken in coconut milk dish which was delicious. I was with a group of people all of whom liked the food and drinks. The portions are not gigantic which is probably a good thing as otherwise I would have eaten too muych.

a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
