An amazing meal that does come at a price. But we knew that ahead of time so that part was OK. It's always tough to describe value. The food is great, yes! Is it $270 (including tip and a $62 bottle of wine) great for two people, that's a up to debate. Our server was absolutely outstanding! More

The food was very good although I was a little surprised with the cost. With tip it was just under $200 for 2. Of course we did each have a couple of drinks, plus one dessert. They charge for bread which is the first place I’ve ever been charged for bread prior to dinner. All in all it was a great place to go pre-theater. More

While I made the reservation for 1 p.m., my plans changed and I walked in at noon. There was no problem getting seated and I was given a window view, My apologies, I do not recall my server’s name however she was enthusiastic and helpful. All dishes are cooked to order; this means a bit more time with the flexibility of leaving items out. The twice fried pork dish, minus bell peppers, was a perfect lunch all by it self. Choice of white or brown rice a good touch. There was some confusion at the end over paying and receiving change however it was cleared up with thoughtful apologies by the staff involved. All in all, a good first experience and I wouldn’t mind going back to sample other dishes. More

Driven by many times, always wanted to stop in. Finally did, was not disappointed at all. The rice (2 choices) was cooked perfectly, the dal and other toppings were excellent. Unfortunately, l don't eat a lot, so... it wasn't a good deal for me, but my plate was delicious. I don't like green tea, and that is what they offered. Will I go again? Yes, with someone who has a large stomach! More
