“Fantastic salads, huge portions, fresh and great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

This was a great find whilst wandering around the Marina district and Chestnut St. You basically create your own combination starting with salad, then meat, hot vegetables and then drink. Salad ingredient selections are wonderfully varied and fresh. The large salad main allows 7 choices. I went for the side salad plus meat. Both meals we had were enormous, fresh and very good. And I managed to get a pot of good quality green tea. Finally! Definitely coming back.

“loved the salad!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

This was a fun place to visit. I ordered a large salad (full size) with 7 toppings. Next time I will probably order a side salad as the full size was huge. All the toppings were very fresh and good. They had a good selection with some unusual items available. The grilled fennel was a first for me. The food must be consistenly good as the place was packed!!

“Love this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Great food for all types of diners. Want one of the best salads you'll ever have? Comes in several sizes and you get to choose seven toppings included: my favorite, candied walnuts. Want a comfort food dinner with hot turkey, homemade mashers and amore? Plus it's self-serve and priced great. Only complaint is they need more tables.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Salads and sandwiches, with a good selection of meats and vegetables. We've been several times on trips to San Francisco and have never been disappointed.

“great place for a fresh meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

I was new to San Fran and a mail woman told me about this place that consistently served great, economical lunch. The food was delicious and clearly fresh. Even better was the warmly welcoming staff that were able to accommodate any alteration to the menu.
