“Great food, great service, very friendly staff”

Visiting Colorado Springs and saw it was rated the number one restaurant. Now I see why. Chef Maya and her daughter were extremely friendly and warm. I will definitely be going back when I'm in town again.

“Maybe a bad day?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

We went here because of the high trip advisor reviews, although I don't understand why....service was slow and uninterested, the food was bland and cold. Maybe they were just having a bad day??

“Excellent food - gracious service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Based on other reviews,we visited this restaurant. We were greeted by the owner who is a wonderful and gracious person. The food was excellent and the service attentive. Not only was the food freshly made while we waited but we also received instructions on how to eat the food since it was our first time. Wonderful experience. Will definitely return.
