Reviewers here have mentioned bad service. I don't know if the service is bad or that this restaurant is just understaffed. It was hard to get our waiter's attention sometimes, but that's not because he wasn't working hard. He was just over-extended. They should hire...More

30mins waiting the waiter. 1h waiting for the food after ordering. The food was ok, but the place was COLD and the timing was awful
