The service is very slow. The menu is very large with numerous options. The food is pretty average/low quality. Would not chose to eat here again. Many better options on the street.

Big queues and big food. Certainly not a place to count calories or have a small nibble. It’s a serious eating fest with carbs and a menu that wouldn’t have looked out of place thirty years ago. However, for a once in a while taste...More
