Good food, quick service, and open late! Grilled chicken, rice, and beans is what I ordered and I was pleasantly surprised.

VERY GOOD!! Small joint, good food! We liked that they were open fairly late. The sauce options they give you are good.

The 2nd time we've eaten here and possibly the last. The rices got mixed up and the chicken for one of the dishes was less than the other. It's tasty, but more attention would be welcome. We kept having to go back for forks, knives, and fixing the order. The steamed vegetables were nearly raw.

Really the only good thing about this restaurant is that is semi healthy. The service is beyond bad, the atmospheric is depressing, but the food is ok. I only eat here for lunch and take advantage of the five dollar lunch special, which includes wraps, sandwiches, and burritos.

Fast food chicken that doesn't have to be fried. Had GRILLED chicken wings that were good, nice flavor. Grilled chicken plates - diced white meat served over rice with two sides. The mashed sweet potatoes were very good. The grilled chicken fajita was loaded with chicken but the fajita was more like pita bread. If you want fast grilled chicken... More

Tried them out. First impression is that It's in a shady, run-down looking plaza and the inside looked more of the same with fake plants, TVs, with a confusing looking menu. Had a combo meal with white meat. Chicken had good flavor, but the texture was chewy, possibly undercooked or microwaved. Rice was bright and yellow, but bland. Curry sauce... More

On Feburary 2, had dinner, was sick in bed for two days with food poisoning. Called to speak with owner and manager would not give me their contact information and told me "good luck" finding the owner. He was right, I have been trying but cannot find the owner. I guess is the best way to avoid the public. I... More
