- This place is fabulous! The food is so fresh and the prices are very reasonable. I go for lunch several times a month and cannot get enough. − golfubet, Citysearchers
- The clean, uncluttered setting of the restaurant and quick service created a great first impression. The food was balanced in flavor and my request for "very spicy" was met but the heat from the chilies didn't overpower the other ingredients. − bernieball, Google Mappers
