Excellent food and service, good prices for lunch, a bit pricey for dinner. Why are there 2 on the same street, a block apart?

Ate here with my friend who lives in Ventura. We ordered the veggie delight and the chicken avocado curry. The veggie delight was okay. The chicken avocado curry was exceptional. I would definitely eat here again

I'm not sure of the exact number of their seating since it's not really a big place but I think it will fit more than 50 people. Yes, they are open on the weekends starting at 11am.
