Nothing spectacular, traditional Flat Top. On the small size. Probably won't be back just because it was a tight fit.

I "composed" a pad thai bowl and put in the white stick which indicated that I had allergies to an item. When the bowl was served I thought it was not as I had created and sure enough in had been compromised with another order...not a safe choice for anyone who expects to avoid certain items like shell fish. When I complained the bowl was removed and I left hungry. What a disaster.

Even though the restaurant was half empty we waited at least 5 minutes for a table while the manager restocked the food bar.
Its similar to the dinner where you pick your own toppings for either French toast, pancakes, or omelettes. However, the food bins emptied out very quickly and there weren't ready ones to be restocked. We ended up waiting at the food bar for several toppings to be restocked. It seemed like they were understaffed and not prepared for 5 tables of people.
Also, even though we put our bowls down at the same time, one came out 10 minutes later.

Loved the fact that you can mix and match whatever you want and they'll cook it for you. Poultry, seafood, veggies all looked fresh.

This place is always packed by suburbanite students and / or their families. Its impossible to get a table at any normal time. The food is OK, but the prices a bit high. If you've never been to a place like this its fun for the novelty. You make up your own bowl of starches, veggies, meats, and sauces and then they stir fry it up for you. You can go back again and again if you decide to pay for the bottomless bowl and you're willing to wait online again and again. Here in C-U, unless you are trapped on campus, you'd be way better off with 301 Mongolia downtown.
