Re: “Pleasantly Punjab

I live nearby but review doesn't sound like the restaurant we went to at that location. The restaurant is not very clean and the food obviously preprepared from a food service or Lee Lee's. the food is bland and not well prepared with inferior ingredients. The staff often seems completely oblivious to the customers.

They have the most yelp reviews disputed I have ever seen for a restaurant. The reviews where customers complain about being sick after eating there have mostly been removed. I know mine and my wife's were.

Re: “Distill My Heart

You can't say anything about the Independent is untrue because the people behind its origins have taken their names away from the place.You also can't blame the writer because the "truth" is the truth of the people who are now running it.

Re: “Distill My Heart

The article on The Independent Distillery was untrue. The hard work, accomplishments and "true story" behind those who actually built the brand, distilled the spirits and designed the bar were missing entirely and/or misrepresented.

Re: “Distill My Heart

Elgin Distillery also puts out a damned good gin, as well as some good brandies and whiskeys.

The IUCN currently rates Pacific Bluefin tuna as Vulnerable, the Southern Bluefin tuna as Critically Endangered and the Atlantic bluefin tuna as Endangered. 'Vulnerable' means that it faces a high risk of extinction in the wild. 'Endangered' means that it is facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild. 'Critically endangered' means it is facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild.

To Rita: the SW corner of 6th Avenue and Broadway.

To SonoranWinds - really? Was that necessary? Grow up.

Re: “Caviar Dreams

Have visited MiAn three times since the opening and all experiences were VERY positive. I am a BIG fan of Senae Thai and I wasn't all that excited about another Asian restaurant coming in downtown. But MiAn is great - from the ambiance (relaxed but classy) to the knowledgeable wait staff, to the owner (or manager) always stopping by the table to make sure we were happy. The care that they take in their product shows. Definitely worth a try, and I wish them the best of luck.

Re: “Pleasantly Punjab

My wife & I's favorite Indian restaurant, hands down. You did make 2 errors in your review. Mukhtiar Singh owns the "Flavor of India".( and Gandhi's, if I'm not mistaken). Harjinder is related to Mukhtiar. And "Gandhi's" is located at FT Lowell & Stone ( NWcorner) NOT Prince & Stone. Let's not have people getting lost looking for this fine restaurant !!

The An family is nearly as overrated as the Flores family in the Tucson restaurant world

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

I started going to this place since last year. Onnce a week, twice a week.
I've experienced nothing negative. Always clean environment,welcomed in all the time, and the food is great!!!very authentic, they speak enough English to get the job done which is great also.If you any trouble just refer to picture menu.There's always a lot of other Chinese people that go which is a plus sign. There food is the most authentic in tucson. Some common and some only common food to their race is served their. I've been everywhere in tucson and pride myself in knowing all the best food places in tucson from rich to poor. North to south, East to west...this is thee best.Love the hot oil traditional beef soup sliced thin and spicy wontons. Everything is delicious.Owners are in China.

Re: “Roll Out: Sushi-Kito

This place is called Sushi-Lito with an "L" not Kito with a K.

Re: “Caviar Dreams

$14 is a lot of money for trendy fusion sushi rolls. If I'm going out to eat sushi and want to pay those prices, I'm going to Yamato and getting the omakase - the real thing from a real master.

Re: “Caviar Dreams

But where is it? I see the address but the fact that it is in the TEP building is important. Did I miss that?

Re: “Caviar Dreams

Tucson doesn't need another Flagstaff wanna be...especially with Obon within walking distance. There are so many good options in this town, and it's a shame that this column is usually wasted on obvious marketing that doesn't get very deep into the culinary mecca of Tucson.
