I live quite close to there and have been there a few times. I go because it's convenient. Quite often there are a number of people just hanging around.

Got hooked on this place a few years ago when a friend made me go with her. This spot is alittle cramped but great for takeout. Cant wait for the newest location to open on Herring Cove Rd where KFC used to be.
