This is a new place where Armani's Grill used to be located. The owner/chef definately has a passion for cooking and evrything I have eaten at this restaurant has been fantastic. I will be a longtime repeat customer for sure. Lets support local owned businesses!!!

My husband and I had dinner here recently and really enjoyed it. He had red thai seafood curry and absolutely loved it. I had the goat cheese salad with grilled chicken on top which was very flavourful. We will eat here again.
