Everything I tried was amazing - there was lots to choose from, and all of the options were delicious. The restaurant does a great job at blending local flavor with my favorite dishes from the US. The service was also great; each of the waiters spoke English and made an effort to get to know you. Overall, it was a five-star experience!
