The food and service overall were wonderful. Really enjoyed the spices and flavors, nothing bland in our orders. Nice size portions for entrees, small sides. Would dine here again.

None when we were there (in the evening), though the music playing was pleasant. However, as noted in my review, we left without food and would not go back.
