We did the California Enchi, Salmon Taco, Chicken Verde and Avocado corn burrito for a working lunch. The dishes were so good we shared everything. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly waiter made this a must visit next time I'm in town. At 1 pm on a Thursday it was busy so be prepared to wait at the weekend!

Sunday brunch is great. Only thing is there's no Bloody Mary's and all drinks have a Margarita swirl, so if your not into Margaritas make sure to take that into account.

All four different plates we had was very good.......plates clean are a good sign.

There is no sign posted that dogs are not allowed. There is a pet store two storefronts away. We were I'm this neighborhood called Willow Glen. We were very hungry and we sat in the back patio with out 4lbs puppy. We are asked to leave. Took the food home, which we thought we could enjoy in the back patio (not busy on a Tuesday evening close to 8:00pm). Our food was cold and the presentation is not the same on a "to go box". Luckily they refunded the price of the Margarita that was was not allowed to enjoy in the back patio.

The food is almost an art form. I had green rice with mango, fruits, edamame and grilled chicken. I finished every bite.Very creative and different palate mix- and very delicious.

Always a new entrée to try, and always tasty and unique! Never a bad visit! Lunch or dinner - both are equally excellent at all locations.
