The service is a bit scattered. It appears that there is mainly just one waiter. We had to ask for refills of water.
The big draw is the lunch special, which is even good on the weekends, at a price of only $5.50. You have to pay cash to get that price. It comes with either salad (iceberg lettuce and ginger dressing) or soup (pea with a clear broth). Then there is a large range of entrees to choose from, across categories - chicken, beef, vegetarian, noodles. The portion sizes are plentiful, but not large enough to yield leftovers. Most entrees come with yellow rice that has chickpeas sprinkled throughout. I ordered the curry potatoes that come with naan (bread) instead of rice. I've also tried the spicy beef, which is mixed with a range of vegetables. I was pleased that it was genuinely spicy.
Most of the dishes are tasty, but they all have too much salt in them. If you only have moderate expectations, you can enjoy a meal here.
