I love the teriyaki chicken bowl, with vegetables. It's cooked fresh when you order. Small location but outdoor seating is nice

Service is take out or eat informally there, so no atmosphere, but very good food dishes at reasonable Eagle prices. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sauces are varied and good. Definitely worth trying. Portions are generous.

I ordered the Salmon low carb bowl with what was suppose to have 3X the vegetables. It was a bowl full of raw cabbage cut into large chunks to big to eat and a few broccoli pieces. The "Kimachee" sauce which is advertised as a spicy garlic sauce is Sriracha. The salmon was very good which is why I am... More

I had what tasted exactly like a teriyaki bowl from Costco for way too much moolah! Yep, I'd never dine there again.

A very casual place to grab a great meal. No ambiance. We usually order take out or eat outside. The food is great and workers are young and fun. Nice to be able to grab something healthy and quick when you are in a rush. A bit expensive for what you get- around 8 per person for fast food from... More

If you like Bento boxes, don't think that this is what you will get here. They basically serve big bowls of rice with a few veggies and a little bit of protein on top. Their sauces were way too sweet and it was mostly rice...and rice is cheap...so it wasn't worth the $8. Not impressed.

Bowl of rice with a choice of meat and a bit of sauce. Kind of like something you could microwave at home, but okay if you are in the area and in the mood to get something quickly. Don't go out of your way to go here. Super average. Not good, not bad...just food.

They keep it simple here, with a pretty simple menu. But it's dang good. Very tasty. Just a rice bowl (white or brown), meat and veggies. Can add peanuts. Your choice of six sauces. Atmosphere and service are nothing special, but the food makes up for it. Very limited indoor seating, so you may want to do take out. Outdoor... More
