“Fresh food cooked in front of you for a very reasonable price”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

A great idea. You select your fresh food, from a good selection of vegetables, herbs, chilli, garlic, meat, chicken, fish and shrimps. It is cooked on a hot plate in front of you, you're asked if you would like noodles or rice and to select your sauce. It is then handed back to you hot and ready to eat.
You get to go back as often as you like, so it's a good place to go when you're hungry.
The staff were all very pleasant, and it was a very fresh and nutritious lunch, enjoyed by us all.

“Fun Place To Eat”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

I Love This Place! You Get To Choose Exactly What Goes In Your Food And It Its All Fresh Veggies, You Get To Watch Them Cook it In Front Of You. The Cooks Are Super Friendly And Fun To Watch. You Can Fill Your Bowl As Many Times As You Want, Each Time Choosing Something Different. Fun, Fun, Fun (:

“It was ok not great like most of the online reviews”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Stumbled across the review for this place and a sister location (Mexican) and decided to go with the bowl because my hubby and I love flat top grill. The location is somewhat hidden and lots like an old elementary school cafeteria from the 70's. food is hot in fresh but the selection on the bar is limited compared to flat top and similar. Staff was ok not friendly but not rude and for an all you can eat option prices are fair. Love that they have brown and white rice as an option.

“DO NOT EAT HERE”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Employees were rude,they hardly give you any food for your money, and when I complained about a hair in my food- they said it was mine. (I am a male with extremely short hair. The hair I found was about 6 inches long)

“This Place is Really Good”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

I gave my rating based on the price and the quality of the food served. You pick your raw ingredients for the "grillers" to cook for you. The ingredients are fresh, delicious, and diverse. You can get just about anything you could possibly want in a stir-fry. The guys at the grill are friendly and entertaining, They have great suggestions that can make your meal unique. My favorite is a combination of veggies, tofu, beef, and I have it prepared with the Thai peanut sauce combined with jalepeno lime sauce over rice noodles. Yum! You can go back as many times as you want, and get a different combination of ingredients with different sauces. The servers are at your table to provide your beverage of choice, and they are really spot-on. I love this place and have brought friends quite a few times. Everyone loves it. Can't wait to go back!
