Re: “Korea House

Spent 3 years in Korea and have eaten Korean food for almost 30 years. This is some of the best. Up there with some of the better San Francisco Korean restaurants.

Re: “Kampai

I've been to Japan 68 times on business and rate Kampai food as good as anything I have had in Japan...the service is excellent and the prices very reasonable....I eat there at least once every week....

Re: “Café Passé

My favorite place to enjoy a breakfast al fresco. The patio out back features several different outdoor spaces to choose from, all wonderful. The food is fresh and delicious. A full bar in a cafe is a little odd, but not a bad thing for those who want a mimosa or Irish Coffee!

Re: “Lotus Garden Restaurant

I moved here from San Francisco and have had a hard time finding really good Chinese food. BirdsEye frozen vegetables tossed with plain chunks of tofu in a salty brown sauce doesn't do it. I can't believe it took me this long to try Lotus Garden, but it's the real thing--snow peas and carrots were lightly cooked so they were bright and had a bit of snap, the sauce relied on the flavors of its ingredients and not salt for its punch, the tofu was sliced thin and lightly fried for texture and flavor, and the shrimp were huge. My new go-to Chinese place.

Re: “The Steakhouse at the Desert Diamond Casino

For my money, this is THE best steakhouse in Tucson for those who want to get ALOT of great food at an extremely affordable price!

Re: “La Fresita

Very good food and an excellent selection! I'm glad I live close by. P.S. I spoke Spanish and was answered in English!

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

Food is ok. Prices are not. Better value and service elsewhere.

Re: “Mimi's Café

Can't believe I spent sixty dollars on some of the worst food in my life. Does the cook not have taste buds or just not taste his food?

Re: “Govinda's Natural Foods Buffet and Boutique

Someone please tell confused Indigo Star that Govinda's is not "glutton free" as she states. Gluttons are not excluded from Govindas.
Indigo Star does not know the difference between "glutton free" and "gluten free."

Re: “Mimi's Café

Terrible food that tastes like it came from a fast food dollar menu. Worse service.

Re: “Bobo's Restaurant

I've been working as a busser here for the last few months, and all I can say is... DAMN THIS FOOD IS AWESOME!!! I get a free meal twice a day and can't get sick of it! We have so many regulars it's hard for anyone else to get a seat. I have never worked in a restaurant that get's half this busy. Have you ever seen a waiting list on a tuesday at 10-30 in the morning? You will here. The omelettes are made with 4 eggs, and that's only one fifth of the whole thing. God I love it here, and I know you will too!!!

Re: “Magpies Gourmet Pizza

Only someone who owns the place would say their pizza is great. I found it quite ordinary and not nearly as good as Brooklyn or Mario's at the corner of Ft Lowell and Stone. BRooklyn is too small and noisy for my tastes.

Re: “Teresa's Mosaic Café

I just do not get this places' popularity. THe owner has an attitude having taken over from his parents, the service is only fair and the portions very small. Its only because of the fact that there are so few restaurants on this end of town that this place stays busy.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

While disappointed with Tucson restaurants overall, I do like to go to Luke's on Ft Lowell. The place is a dive and the people rough around the edges but the sandwiches are good and the fries the best I have ever tasted. Be forewarned, the new Speedway location is under different ownership and the food is not as good especially the fries they are using.

Re: “Kampai

We loved the Speedway location; however, the same food we normally order- sesami chicken and Sushi was not even edible and portions small.

David, did you loose your cooks or what, we will never return. After 8 years of twice a week patronage we are deeply disappointed
