Visited with friends on a Tuesday night. Pleasant, friendly service, good portion sizes and good value. Lots to choose from if you are vegetarian. Only minor negative was size of tofu chunks, would be much easier to eat if only a third of the size....More

Good but not great food. Menu appeared clumsy. The vegetarian dishes lacked variety. Water not being refilled and if there are no coconut for the coconut ice cream do tell the customers prior. Get better and not be mediocre.
