Loved the food. Loved the price even more. We ate breakfast for $11 total. Good sized servings for the price. Highly recommend.

The food was actually delicious and affordable. Me and hubby spent less than $20 and shared. Ordered a couple things from the special board and was pleasantly surprised at how great it was! Friends got the mini loco moco, They loved it. It was their...More
