yes -- we don't add seasonings to most of our proteins until they're ordered. Just tell the server that you want no salt in the preparation. Thanks!

Dine on the enclosed porch or main dining room of the newly remodeled 1920s bungalow, on the front lawn, or in the shaded backyard "park" graced by a huge banyan tree. Donna and Jim have created a colorful restaurant and gallery that is casually elegant with an emphasis on great food, international flavors and lots of love. We also cater events.
