The food here was really good and the service was great. The curry dishes and crab fried rice are really tasty.

Came here during our recent visit - the quality continued to please, and our toddler granddaughter enjoyed her food (as did we). The food here is not superb, but it is certainly quite reasonable, given the price.

I've been going to Tofu House for 10 years. The food is good and but the restaurant is dirty. They need to clean it better especially since they raised their prices on their dishes over the years.
