Though it is only open Thursday through Sunday, this place is well worth the wait. I love their blend of Asian, middle eastern, Indian, Greek, and American cuisine. Even fussy, non-adventurous eaters will find something delicious here.

We had brunch here with family and friends the day after our wedding. I loved the buffet offerings - they were creative and mostly vegetarian. We had people from ages 4-87 in our group, and everyone enjoyed their meals.

One of the worst "restaurant" experiences I've ever had. First, we walk in, and there's no one inside - no diners or staff, even after banging the gong for service (yes, that's an actual thing). Eventually a woman pops in and tells us to sit...More

This eccentric little Athens eatery combines local artwork, a creekside patio, and delicious Asian-inspired food at reasonable prices. They are very welcoming to guests with special dietary restrictions, and every dish is made fresh. Thank you for a great dinner!

I wound up there with a friend. I still don't understand the hours. But if you can catch it open, Go, Go, Go! Very, very good food. You can't get it anywhere else on earth. I had this peanutty, gingery chicken that was a total...More
