“Overpriced and overpowering smell”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The restaurant does not smell good when you walk in. We asked and they said it is all the fresh vegetables they cook. But it's hard to get past it, whatever it was. Our lunch there was really expensive for what it was, which was enough food but just ok tasting.

“Great place to eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The food is great and the staff is friendly. Lots to choose from with VERY reasonable prices. The hand painted murials are also nice to look at while you eat.

Actually surprised I didn't reviewed before now. Have frequented the diner for about 9 years now "that's an endorsement in its self" can always count on a good meal here in addition to the service.

“As Expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We used to go here all the time when we lived in the area. Going back again - not much has changed. The food and service are about average - pricing isn't bad. But it is the atmosphere people enjoy!
