We got take out so I can't give you any views on the restaurant itself. When I picked up our order, I didn't really notice the cleanliness of the restaurant. However, when we opened our containers of food, there was a bug that looked like a roach. It could have been in the container that came from the factory. That I don't know. It's still a concern I would think you would be interested in. Thank you.
