The food I ate was good quality. I love that one of the boys working there said his Mom cooked the food earlier that day.
The server was very slow & inexperienced or untrained, i.e. carrying one glass of water to a table of 8 people, when we had ordered water for everyone several times. Or delivering food without utensils so that the potato salad had to sit there until a utensil, easily carried with the food, was brought. That seemed to elude the server.
Also, the place didn't have enough tables for all people. It's great that they have the business! We noticed that there is an unused upstairs and wonder if they have plans to attempt to use the space.
I would return if in the neighborhood, but wouldn't travel to downtown Oakland to go to that restaurant.
