I don't think I've ever had such fresh vegetables in one meal before. I loved the amazing accompaniment of bread & the spicy Bangladeshi side. It's SO apparent that the head chef is an expert in "umami."

The staff is so lovely and attentive. They were completely understanding with my lack of French and the language barrier was no problem. Thank you so much for your hospitality, I'll be sure to come again!"
