Amazing service! I’ve never encountered a more helpful & friendly staff. Moreover, they were flexible & accommodating about the tasting menu – there were no rules on how many dishes one can choose from each category or restrictions on what items can be picked. Each dish that I had is memorable. – Redfoodie user review.
