    Two weeks ago, my sister and I went to this affordable Korean restaurant. We were so satisfied with their delicious Samgyeopsal and spicy ramen. It was our first time to taste that kind of Korean food. The price was so friendly, and it made us amazed. We decided to visit this place again with our friends. Thanks a lot!

    This restaurant has been one of our top choices of all the restaurants in the area. Staffs are friendly and attentive. A little bit pricey for the working-class people but worth every penny. Contemporary and classic dishes are well prepared and plentiful, quality is very good and of course desserts, an entire section's got you covered. Thank you very much!

    This place felt like home. Everyone was so nice and it was kind of quite in a peaceful way. Ordered the Saag Paneer with some garlic naan and rice.

    • 11. Jun 2020

    This place provides wonderful Indian food in a cozy and fun atmosphere. Everything we ate was delicious. We were a party of 8 and ordered a good variety from the menu. All of it came made to order and our host guided those who were first timers. My wife and daughter, who are extremely picky with their food enjoyed the bountiful flavors.

    The icing on the cake was the superb personality and service of Harji and his parents. He is a pleasure to have as a host and made our dining experience pleasurable. I've been to many Indian places and most barely care if you come or go. You're guaranteed a pleasant experience here.

    We are definitely coming back even though we don't live close by. Thanks so much, Harji fir literally treating us like family!

    Hurray for local burgers and burritos!!! Staff is professional and efficient. Very friendly with a good amount of seating.

    Best of all the burgers were great and a large fry is enough for four adults to share easy.

    Have you heard of Hula Pie? They have the most legendary dessert ever since. The restaurant is located right on the beach, perfect for viewing the sunset and chowing down on their delicious fish tacos and poke bowls. If you’re lucky, you’ll even catch live music. I would definitely be turning back here soon with my friends.

    Yesterday, we went to this Mexican restaurant, and it was fascinating on my behalf. They got plenty of delicious foods and beverages. It was my first time tasting their cuisine, yet it was never a doubt that I happened to taste everything they served in my table. I was astonished by the smiling faces of their waiter and waitress. Perhaps, I would recommend this prestigious restaurant to my friends and workmates. My hands up with their excellence and decency.

    Kathleen's is one of my favorite places in LA. I found it when I had just relocated from chicago a couple years ago. Kathleen has always been SO welcoming to me. She greets me & my friends with a smile & a hug each time we come in & I feel very at home here. The one dollar mimosas are unbeatable !! & the food (seriously anything on the menu) is delicious always. My favorite are the homemade soups they make each day. For breakfast I recommend the French toast or Chorizo. But again- you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Kathleen's has become a staple of my life in LA & I couldn't be happier I discovered it. I'd recommend this place to anyone!!

    We chose to stay here an hour to enjoy the air conditioning and the convenient space. I just want to say also that, in addition to a nice meal, we had a delightful waitress, Jackie. She had just the right balance of friendliness and efficiency. She recognized that we wanted time to visit and she did not rush us. She and other staff members made certain that we had everything we needed. Great!

    Their sticky rice isn't mushy, the glass noodle salad is spicy, sweet, sour, and savory. Pad See Ew is nice and smokey. Their prices are quite fair in the area. Thai House costs a bit more but flavors are lacking.

    With check in, you can get free thai iced tea, can't say no to that! Cost was a bit costly at about $10.75 after tax but i guess the thai tea made up for it. Definitely coming back still but going to give other items a try and update my post.

    I strongly recommend this restaurant to you. All of their foods were delicious and admirable. I couldn't ask for more! This place would be a great place for some family events as well. They strive to provide us the best service that exceeds our expectations. Notable assistance and professional people. Exceptional!
