    Really full and yummy place. There's usually a line in front of the place and that's why lots of bypassers stop. Good spices. Prices are pretty low. Very social place.

    Avoid the tea. It's served in a pint glass that's way too hot to handle, and it's an unstrained floral concoction.

    Very touristy, but solid food. Like others have said, have the owners order for you, and you'll get some gems that you won't find on the menu.

    Two different employees lied to me and said they did not take credit cards, which they do. Made me go down the block to get cash and pay a service charge. Then I saw them swiping cards. Never again.
