I'm a Buddhist located in a part of America that doesn't have many temples. This experience was a true honor for me, and for it I am grateful. It's a small place but absolutely striking. It's a covered building open to air with several statutes,...More

We are regulars for the Sunday lunch. It's lovely to sit out in the yard and watch the children play while you enjoy your lunch at a shady picnic table. Today's vegetable vendors had some truly spectacular looking produce!

We arrived last on a Sunday afternoon. This is an interesting little spot and the food being cooked smelled really good. Next time we will try to get there a little earlier in the day.

The meatball soup did not taste fresh and the following day I had persisting belly problems. I'll avoid the temple during the hotter months from now on.
