“Best bang for the buck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a great for not just shopping but a live classroom to show the kid all the handy stuffs and let them jump like little monkeys on the bed and sofa otherwise not allowed at home. The price is competitive, whereas the quality is hit or miss. I got a book shelf that got problems with screws. They are happy to give you a replacement for no charge. Food is always great!

“Not great variety. Not very good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Very small and limited offerings. Save your appetite for a restaurant elsewhere after shopping. There was one wrap for lunch and asked if we could have it without cheese and was told no.

“Always interesting IKEA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

I went to shop but the aroma from the IKEA cafeteria beckoned me to at least take a look to see what they might be offering that day. I don't mind cafeteria style venue specially when I only need a meal whilst doing something else (like immersing myself in the IKEA experience)! The variety was very good and type of food was very wholesome as I expected. I wouldn't go there just to eat but don't think that is what IKEA offers it for in the first place. IKEA is uber cool and eating there is part of the experience!!

“Convenient and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Shopping at Ikea? No worries if it's meal time. The cafeteria-style restaurant offers a delicious variety of salads, sandwiches, soup, entrees and side-dishes as well as desserts! The value is reasonable thought not dirt cheap. If you don't mind cafeteria-style eating, you could plan a visit to Ikea just to visit the Restaurant.

I had my most favorite bowl of soup ever at Ikea, and one of my top-ten favorite desserts as well. Don't forget to stop on the way out to buy some Swedish specialty foods to enjoy at homw.

“Great hot meal and the prices are excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Nice hot meal for very little money. We stopped in the restaurant after shopping at IKEA. Plenty of room to sit. Clean tables. You need to take your tray back to the empty tray area after you are done eating, but it is very convenient. The food is set up in a cafeteria type setting. You get a tray and choose from a good variety of food choices.
