We were surprised at the shape & size of the rump but it was good although a bit tough. The cheese sauce was a bit flowery but the Greek butter was delish. The sweet potatoe was a nice surprise on offer too! Will return!

After hearing much hype about this particular store we popped in for a quick Sunday night dinner. My wife had a fantastic kosher steak but my beef ribs were not great. Rib were tough and didn't love the basting. Service was good.
