Food is delicious and a great value. The 3 star rating is because, the address is wrong in open table. We drove around a residential neighborhood and called when we confirmed that the restaurant was in a different town. The other star was because they served chicken to a vegetarian. We were careful but our waiter told us that the dishes looked the same.
