We had been traveling down 101 and needed to stop by a place for lunch. We saw this restaurant was #1 on trip advisor for King City and decided to give it a shot. The food was pretty darn good. Id definitely recommend the clam chowder. The tuna salad melt needed lettuce. And the ranch salad dressing was runny. However all in all it was a great meal. Their only downfall was their bathrooms. When we entered the women's bathroom, there was absolutely no toilet paper in ANY of the stalls. Then later the paper towel machine ran empty. The worst part was when I went up to inform the waitress that was standing by the cash register, she looked at me like I was crazy. Beware. If the bathrooms are not PERFECT, tell them.

Driving south from the Bay Area, needing a place for lunch -- thank you, TripAdvisor! Exterior is nondescript, but inside it's very bright and welcoming. The menu is extensive and includes a lot of choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner (breakfast menu available til 3:00 pm), plus mediterranean-style appetizers (hummus, baba ghanoush). Thelocal wines are OK, but that's not why you're here! We split a Philly cheesesteak and a side of onion rings (the rings were a little heavy on the oil, the sandwich was delicious and ample. A tuna salad sandwich that passed by our table was enormous). Finished with a housemade bread pudding that was rich and creamy - and huge. Super stop!

We were staying in King CIty to visit the new Pinnacles National Park. We found this website and saw the good recommendations so we tried it.
Good prices, awesome service, and amazing food! When we return to the National Park we will definitely come back to this restaurant.
My husband ordered pork chops that were perfectly grilled with onions and mushrooms and a fresh veggie medley. I ordered beef kabob which came with the most awesome basmati rice with saffron, persian yoghurt/cucumber sauce and a tomato relish with pita.
If you are in the area, this is a must!

We had turned up our noses at this freeway-close restaurant but checked tripadvisor and were glad we did. Great food, good variety. The cook is Persian so we leaned that way in our dinner choices, kebabs wonderful, tender, savory, fresh delicious sides. A great find anywhere, wonderful to find it on the 101.
