The lack of staff almost made it impossible for us to order. We ended up waiting for about 10 minutes before we could flag down a server and 15 minutes before our food arrived. Granted this place appears to be operated by the immediate family however one or two more employees would have sped up the service. They were friendly and courteous nevertheless which deserves recognition.
Overlooking the wait time, most foodies like myself go back for the food. This true in my case as I have gone back three other times. Plus, when you’re with good company, you hardly notice the wait.
The restaurant is packed in a small space that it can get quite loud when there is a full house (which is almost every night). Making a reservation a couple hours in advance is highly recommended. Due to its space constraint, I would not recommend bringing a party of more than 6 as that would take up almost 1/4 of the space available.
You can tell they put pride in what they do best. Such an example would be presentation right from you sit down. Neatly folded awaits a napkin in the shape of a folded shirt. Having the owner introduce himself and tell us their ‘story’ shows compassion in their work. The arrangement of garnishes also add to the presentation of the dishes.
