The food is so fresh and tasty. You eat with/on real dishes! No styrofoam or plastic utensils like you might expect in an 'express' restaurant. And so many healthy options for any diet. I would definitely seek this place out again for lunch.

Nice little place to stop in for lunch. I had the curry chicken with vegetables and potatoes, it was pretty good. I have a gluten allergy and was very glad to see that their menu had little symbols indicating which items were gluten-free.
