I have been here a few times for lunch, and every time I go the staff are friendly and the food is good. The place seems to have a friendly atmosphere and the staff just have that attention to detail which is good to see.

I've been here before and it certainly has not lost it's edge. Top spot, comfortable, and very good service. Good menu choice. According to the counter, it seems to have won some awards, and does derserve it. Keep it up.
