The food is great and you always get a friendly greeting from the guy at the front counter. Some of the wait staff are not so attentive but it could be worse. I highly recommend this place.

The ingredients are always fresh and 'clean' tasting. You can ask for any modification of any dish. The staff is so friendly and sweet. You can eat in or take out--- you will be happy with either choice. The food is delicious.

Got delivery last night. Yummm Loved the crispy Chicken with walnuts. I was impressed with the multiple options of healthier entrees and cooking options (steamed or sautéed. ) We will be back!
