This is similar to eating in the dining commons of a country club. The food is quality and the prices are below what restaurants charge for the same items. I had a huge salmon for $15.00 which would be $10,00 more at most restaurants. Soup...More

I cannot say enough about the authenticity of the food here. Go there for the true cultural foods, not the "prime rib" or other items you can get somewhere else. Not cheap, but worth the expense.
