If I could give this restaurant zero stars I would. I've been to this restaurant four times with others who are extremely fond of it, but I find the food tastes bad and looks bad too. In addition, I would ask them how they prepare a dish before you rate this as healthy food. My last meal I had them prepare the tofu/broccoli dish with a Mongolian sauce. The tofu was overcooked and had a strange taste, the sauce had the consistency of water, the broccoli wasn't even warm so it was basically raw in terms of crunchiness. When I asked them how it was prepared, I was told that the "tofu is deep fried before it is added to the dish." Deep fried tofu in a sauteed vegetable dish is not healthy, obviously. I don't understand why this restaurant gets a great rating every year and why they claim to be healthy Chinese food. If you want something much better and healthy, try Asian Bistro at Ft. Lowell and Campbell. The Mongolian Tofu is AWESOME, as is the rice noodles and vegetables dish with a name that escapes me.
Unfortunately this restaurant has closed.
Excellent phos and other Vietnamese foods. Fast and friendly service as well. I always try to eat at Halong Bay whenever in Tucson.
This is our second review - see 2011 review. Service continues to be a major issue at Opa. I asked twice for a drink refill. Put it this way. I ended up leaving my seat and walking over the beverage fountain to refill my glass myself. Awful! The free humus they give you remains very band too. But for five bucks the gyros during lunch are a deal. But don't add fries or a salad b/c you won't need all that extra food. Plus your five dollar meal will turn into an eight or nine dollar lunch.
Best Chicken Parmesan and Italian Wedding Soup in Tucson. ;-)
I forgot to add a rating to my review a moment ago.
I wanted to like this place, the location is handy. But the food was not all that good. The lemon chicken soup I thought was canned because the carrots were mush, the chicken seemed canned, but the pleasant waitress wearing a see-through Grecian chiffon dress that showed off her heavily tattooed body (but she had to wear white hose to cover her tattoed legs because the boss didn't like tattoed legs,) and tiara on her head told me it was made fresh, but it didn't have any flavor. The boss is absent, the plan for an organic farm fell through although there are signs advertising the non-existent farm as providing organic food and goat milk and cheese for the restaurant, and one wonders if this restaurant will stay in business. With good management it could do well. The owner is indeed a fat Greek, he must weight 300 pounds and I am wary of dining in a place where the owner is so obese as it means the food is not healthy. I like Greek food, but have not found a Greek restaurant in Tucson as good as Athens of Fourth downtown but they are not open for lunch.
They have a great Karaoke on Thursday nights. Good service, good prices.
Outstanding. Quick, inexpensive, good flavors.
This is by far my favorite thai place in Tucson. Yes, the service is not the best, the restaurant is often closed on random days and it's a little run down but the food is well worth it. Also, the lunch buffet is great and inexpensive.
No new reviews so i thought I would post one.
Friday has perennial 80's and G. Cover charge and packed. Saturday night ; no cover smaller crowd and sometimes very good bands (Giant Blue, etc). Definitely the night to go. Mixed crowd with many older people looking for hookups (well it's true). Drinks are very reasonable for Foothills, food good. Bartenders are nice and fast
VOTE SHER-E-PUNJAB #1 RESTAURANT IN THE CITY OF TUCSON!!!!!!!! IT DESERVES IT!!!:)
-sher-e-punjab is an amazing place, the service was wonderful it might not look big and fancy but once you order one of there dishes the appearence of the building doesnt matter the naan bread is unlike anything ive ever ate before the aroma of the dishes still remains in my noise til now,the tenduri chicken is very flavorfull try it!!,and i love how you can hear them play indian music softly in the background who ever says they dont appreciate the great dishes that this place brings seriously doesnt know what good food is and shoudnt even be critiking negative comments because they are not true !!,, sher-e-punjab the greatest restaraunt to have ever been open in the cityof tucson..
dont know what the big deal is. Food is average. No bar. long wait during prime time. Clinton ate hear? So what. He ate at MC'D's too.
From the ambience, to the friendly staff, to the great food there is nowhere else in Tucson that I enjoy eating more. It is a must hit every time my family is in town!
Awesome food, haven't had a mediocre meal ever since I started eating there. It's usually packed Sunday late-mornings, so get there early or be ready to wait for a table, it's a small-midsize restaurant.
I tried this place years ago and never went back as I thought the food was mediocre and the place too loud. It can get loud but its really a great restaurant in an area of town with few choices of restaurants. Pizza is just fine, thin crust better than regular. Food portions are hugh and all the food is tasty and reasonably priced. Great staff. Beats dealing with a Brooklyn Pizza kind of place.
I do not understand this places' popularity. Like were is the meat? The sandwiches are hugh only because the bread is hugh with very little filling. And when I eat there which has only been twice in eight years, I worry about chipping a tooth.
Awful food. Seriously bad. The waitress I had had some big towel on her head, smelled like cabbage, and couldn't understand a thing I said. Padd Thai is a signature dish and any halfway decent Thai place should be able to pull it off. It was gross. We complained and someone who claimed to be the owner came over. Started telling us that it was a recipe from her grandmother. Who cares lady, it's BAD!!
Char's - Sorry I strayed. Never again!!!
Great beers, tasty food, attentive servers, no skimpy portions! Very relaxed kick back atmosphere, pool tables too.
