the food is great. I had the pad thai and loaded chips. for a vegan cuisine, you don't miss the meat. it's really nice. it is a family community scene, wholesome, moderately priced and great for the neighborhood.

Went as a family and was pleasantly surprised by the menu. Plentiful portions and very well done. The Bowl of soup was Huge! Desserts were a highlight of the meal, plus great drinks specials.
