Sakoon Restaurant: Reviews

Swapan: ” At Sakoon, the chefs come from 5 star restaurants in India and are pushing the boundaries of Indian food…”
Sonia: “I thought the food was very good, excellent use of the spices, not one spice overpowering the other.”

Rachel: “I felt like there was a Swiss-Italian mama in the kitchen, and we were her favorite people in the world.”

Evvia Estiatorio: Reviews

Peter: “Cooked to perfection, the meat was almost falling off the bone and soft, sweet, fragrant, and slightly smoky.”
Seema: “Standout dishes include the Saganaki, a pan-fried cheese served with a beautiful little sachet of lemon, along with a little oregano to complement the saltiness of the cheese.”
Keith: “Being a Greek restaurant, you know the lamb options have to be good, and believe me, they were.”

Lillie Mae’s House of Soul Food: Reviews

Nicole: “This is THE best fried chicken I’ve ever had.”
Brian: “The two best things about the meal were the corn bread, which was moist and sweet with whole corn kernels in the batter, and the hush puppies that had a beefy rough grain-fried crust, like an apple fritter.”
Jennifer: “I went for the all you can eat Sunday brunch and felt that the food quality, taste and variety were all very good. My favorite dish was the mac & cheese.”

Barrio Fiesta Restaurant: Reviews

Kristine: “If you’re a novice and want to go where the ‘locals go’ this is the place to start your love with Filipino food.”
Brad: “Then the Garlic Chicken came — crisped chicken fried in soft margarine with garlic. I really liked this.”
Mac: “But most of the food was too heavy for my taste. The crispy pata (pig knuckle) was tender and flavorful, though as a knuckle novice, I had some practical trouble tackling the dish (Which bits do I eat?).”
