Wedged in the corner of a mall... Quiet, friendly service. Good value "special" with flavours that indicate the cook cares about the plates as they go out. The soup and dessert seemed home made which is rare these days.

I really like the food and the atmosphere. The wait was a little longer than usual but for the value and food quality, it was worth the wait.
