We stopped in on Saturday at 11:30 and had a great lunch. It opened before the amazing Thai restaurant. All four of us had a great meal. Service was quick and friendly. Pad Thai was great.

We were 2. The restaurant still had tables for 2, and 4. No smile at the entrance, no welcome at all. You have the impression to annoy them. We were proposed a tiny table at the entrance.
