Let me cut to the quick...

It was pretty good, I can see the chef is trying to be ambitious. I had a polynesian chicken which I was scared going to be sauteed breasts and pineapples, but instead was the boneless coated in a coconut breading, sauteed and sauteed vegetable on the side.

My sister got a chicken milanese which I think was even better.

Be careful about the desserts...don't choose the brownie cake which looked fantastic but tasted shmeh.

I think this a GREAT option for a place between NY and Philly and Bucks County, also good for Business meals (but not high high end ones)

Word of warning, we went last Sunday, right before the nine days started and we tried to get the Lamb Kebob (it was the best looking option on the menu). Turns out they were out of lamb -- which the server should have known before taking our orders and the server messed up one order (my sister's) but she got a dessert on the house.
