- We enjoyed both entrées immensely—but the side dishes elevated the meal to another level. The black beans were tender, with their natural juices adding a lot of flavor. The rice was light and fluffy, with just a hint of heat. – Rita Connelly, Tuscon Weekly
- As for the food, it's amazing! You have to try to calamari, it's covered in a sweet/sour sauce which has a unique and unforgettable taste. Also, the black bean dip and tacos are great. – Christina K., Yelp
