    Nice atmosphere, good shakes, service is hit or miss. It's cozy/darker lighting. It's open late which is very nice and good when you want better than a Starbucks hangout. Lots of people on dates here.

    When the weather gets warmer, ask to sit outside. The caves are awesome, but the outdoor seating is even better.

    $12 minimum per person to sit in the cave. A party of four, we'd probably spend over $100 in that place. The lack of class is undeserving of my business. Management cheapened the experience

    Out front, my DB meter read a range of 88 to 113, spending most of the time 101-103. Wait staff should wear ear protection.

    If you want to sit in the caves, it's a $12 min. The food is okay. Definitely need to try the jasmine tea. It's good. Also, the service is lackluster. Often times, you have to wave down your waiter.
