    Food was delicious, I ordered the shrimp curry. It was very flavorful and creamy. It’s a very cute space. Only downside was the service, it took over 20 minutes for someone to take our drink orders after we sat down.

    We had a great meal with an out of town guest on a Sunday night. Lord the freshness and crispy character of the food. Not too spicy but interesting. Will go back soon.
