Umi Star was Shit! They even failed health inspections numerously as well.
Man, I miss Umi Star.
Only been to the ft lowell branch, excellent!, also, they give the option of dads canned soda varieties instead of just the plain fountain brands.
Well, we will see how long this place lasts. Aside from the legendary Zachary's and that old Cuban place that closed down a few years back, none of the restaurants on that stretch of 6th has lasted more than a year or two. My two guesses as to why - 1) parking around campus is a nightmare and 2) college students have gutter palates.
I was told by the owner that the chicken is breast and not tenders (they are slightly different parts). My understanding is he cuts the breast so it fries faster/more evenly. This was also the case at the old location. You might want to verify/clarify that.
it is just ok. I've been twice. once to Ft. Lowell once to Speedway. Both times the same gal behind the counter was not very friendly. The cook at speedway was very nice however. I don't feel I need to go back. The shrimp/fish combo - shrimp was good, Nice plump shrimp. The fish - I hardly remember it. Small and seemed right out of a box. As I sat to eat I thought Why did I come here again? I could have gone to Little Anthony's for nice big pieces of fish -more meal for the price which, btw, is just about the same. I guess it is ok for a quick stop... maybe I need to try the chicken... but why when I want Fish & Chips.
