I had to give this place 4 circles, not because it's good like a 4-circle restaurant would be, but because it's bizarre like one of those things you have to see to believe. I saw it, and I'm still not sure I believe it. Having...More

"Interesting" experience. The restaurant was very heavily decorated at the half containing the dining tables, while the counter and restrooms were entirely undecorated and felt more like a factory. Together with lack of guests, silence, echoes and poor heating this gave a spooky soulless "North...More
