Amazing menu, "knock-you-out" flavors. We go again and again. Don't be in a hurry, however. The kitchen is an "all by hand" operation so you have to be patient is you're there at a busy time.

Friendly service, exotic though not too spicy foods, samall portions to help keep you on that diet. Might be called: A piece of Heaven in a hole-in-the-wall. Not for the Zagat-Guide type

Love this place. Used to be located at the beginning of pacific by Jamba juice and the clock tower. It's now on Front street right past CVS and Trader Joes. It's great for a snack or lunch. CLoses at 2:30! Then opens again at 5 as Malobar.. amazing... just have to say everything is AWESOME! Try it all!
