“Bowl of rice”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

If you like Bento boxes, don't think that this is what you will get here. They basically serve big bowls of rice with a few veggies and a little bit of protein on top. Their sauces were way too sweet and it was mostly rice...and rice is cheap...so it wasn't worth the $8. Not impressed.

“No big deal”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

Bowl of rice with a choice of meat and a bit of sauce. Kind of like something you could microwave at home, but okay if you are in the area and in the mood to get something quickly. Don't go out of your way to go here. Super average. Not good, not bad...just food.

“For a healthy meal, tough to beat”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

They keep it simple here, with a pretty simple menu. But it's dang good. Very tasty. Just a rice bowl (white or brown), meat and veggies. Can add peanuts. Your choice of six sauces. Atmosphere and service are nothing special, but the food makes up for it. Very limited indoor seating, so you may want to do take out. Outdoor seating is nice when weather permits. The meals fill you up but don't weigh you down. Good healthy stuff.
