This is a funny little hole-in-the-wall restaurant where you feel like you’re eating in a friend’s home. Very little in the way of atmosphere or decorative touches and yet they have embroidered linens at each table. The food is tasty and smaller portions than we encountered at most places but prices are very reasonable.

The hosts speak little to no English and the front door is kept locked so you must have a reservation. Usually the husband works the front and the wife cooks in back. I saw one kitchen helper and that was it. A very fun, homey and tasty experience!
