This place is very small. We always order take-out. Make sure to order ahead because it takes a while to get your food. Their foods are all delicious. I love their eggplant wrap!

This was one of my most frequent restaurants while traveling for work in the LA/Carson area from Nov. 2015-Aug 2016 (so yes, I've been there a lot!). The food is DELISH and I'm sad that the small chain (of 3) is only in Southern Cali....More
