Lovely people,lovely food.Jordanian dish with pine nuts is so good.
Didn't expect to write a review but I did not want the above post to be the last, since he was mistaken about it being closed.
My wife and I enjoy a pizza and beer most Friday's before going into the adjacent movie theatre. The service, pizza and beer are always very good. Pizza is delicious, with much of the ingredients made on site. The glasses are chilled (as they should always be) and the draft choices should serve everyone's taste (although I can never get enough dark lager choices anywhere). The service is fast, perfect and always very personal. I would give a shout-out to the server by name, but I don't like doing that if I have not asked the individual first. She always remembers us, and what we like, even though we are never there more than once a week for one beer and a pizza.
Pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service at this little cafe. Rather crowded - apparently the multitudes have found the place, but certainly one of the best food places I've run into in Tucson. Wait staff is knowledgeable and helpful, adding to the overall positive impression. Only possible negative is that in one section of the restaurant, you are in essence in a tent!
My spc needs son & I were just there tonight. It was EXCELENT. THEY A NEW STAFF & cooks. The head c
Should be Best of Tucson consistent winner for all the special selections hand-picked for her customers. Learn a little about wines at the tastings or ask her questions when you shop - she has all the answers - really knows her wines! AND is super nice too! A pleasure to shop here and the quality of the selections is guaranteed to be a good place to get gift-wines without wondering if you did OK!
The Sunday Brunch and Music Series at Monterey Court is fantastic! Great food and the best of local and touring acoustic artists start your week off perfectly. Hosted by local artist, Nancy Elliott, with a guest performer every week.
Best cheesesteaks outside of Philly! ! They even have TastyKakes! ! !
I'm an army brat and I spent 4 years in Iran so for me this place is comfort food. I haven't found a place in Tucson that does Iranian food well. There is nothing quite like their spices like sumak or saffron infused rice and the various kabob dishes. I was taking a trip down memory lane here. The owner was very friendly with us and the waitress was on top of everything. I don't get the negative reviews above. I found the meal great and the portions were huge.
Come try for yourself you will not be disappointed!!!
Great place to eat breakfast. We love Candace, she is very funny and we love the cooks, talk about fast!! We get into Tucson about once a month and try and get to Franks for their Huevos Rancherous on Thursday . This place rocks it
We opted for this restaurant for our Sunday lunch and I am thrilled to have found a diamond in the rough! Since moving here from the Bay Area years ago, we usually wait to eat Thai on our visits back to CA, but not any more. The dishes we chose were nothing short of amazing, including the tofu spring rolls, Gang Garee, and Tom Yum Gai. The crushed peanut sauce for the spring rolls was a delightful nuance to add to the appetizer's appeal. The Gang Garee was an experience that makes me want to get it again next time and yet I'm dying to try the other dishes to see if they have the same complexity of flavors and aromas. Very reasonably priced and served promptly, I only have two words of caution. First, don't be deterred by the appearance of the place itself (very clean and comfortable, just a little plain.) Second, pay attention to the pepper meter on the menu. The Gang Garee is a single pepper rating, but was about as spicy as I can comfortably go, and the Tom Yum Gai is a solid 3 for intensity of spiciness as well as flavor. I can't wait to take our next visitors from out of town!
Love this place. The food, service and atmosphere are excellent :) They are slightly expensive, but it evens out if you go during happy hour. Great fries and wine selection! I've never had anything I didn't like there.
I've had a lot of things from their menu over the times I've been there and have always loved it. Favorites include their messy fries, ribs and the ice cream! Always pleasant service, too. Highly recommend!
Wow, I'm shocked at the bad reviews on here. There's 0% chance that a anyone had an experience like that-- and those users only ever gave one review....hmmmm. They are always kind to everyone and have some of the best tasting food in Tucson. I hope people see past the negativity and give it a shot. It's my go-to for lunch dates with friends I meet up with downtown. The only bummer is they only accept cash-- but I go at least twice a month so obviously it's not a deal breaker lol. They have like 4(?) kinds of fresh juice and their combination plate is always an enjoyable surprise. I highly recommend their chicken mole and their vegetarian tamale :)
I have eaten here a number of times now and enjoyed the food, service and ambiance more than any other Indian restaurant I've ever been to. I felt so confident in this restaurant that I finally talked my son-in-law from England into trying it!! After 12 years in the states he said he finally found a proper Indian restaurant! Being from England and being that Indian food is his favorite, I think that is a great compliment! Keep up the superb work Saffron!
Weekend wine tastings at CataVinos are fantastic. Along with your 6 tastes (amazingly priced at just $10.00!!!) you get gourmet cheese as well as palette cleansers. Yvonne also has a really nice assortment of reasonably priced cheeses, meats, and crackers for purchase to accompany your wine. After your tasting you can purchase a glass of your choice for just $5.00. Each week the wine list is built around a clever theme so you can go every weekend and be sure to taste completely different wines. I've gone there on a whim on my own, planned with friends, and had many personal parties there and I always bring out of town guests there. The atmosphere is lovely both inside the shop and outside on the patio. This is one of the best spots for Tucson fun and a great way to support local business!
need to remove this. no longer there
We love the LIttle Poca Cosa. The food fresh and delicious, and the service warm and friendly. In fact, we are heading out with our family in about 5 minutes to enjoy another thoroughly enjoyable lunch at our favorite little corner restaurant in Tucson ..
The food is very good, different from other sushi restaurants because it also has Mexican food and the tacos are the best!!
