It was great experience overall for it to be my first time there. The food was amazing. However, I tried to order two different things and they told me they were out of it. Then, I wanted to order something else and told me they were out of it too. What I ended up getting was good though, so no complaints there.

Excellent service & such an efficient way of ordering. I wish there were just a few less tables in order to actually space out the seating to be safer for patrons re COVID. The photo booth is amazing & the decor *chefs kiss*

Please opt for the lower sodium spam (it was WAY TOO salty). Also, offer rice as an additional side. Any restaurant that serves spam, better have rice (it's sacrilegious not to, hahaha).

The food was so delicious and the ambiance was cool. I LOVED that the menu had pictures of all the meals on them. The only suggestion I have is maybe more coffee drink options. I would have loved to try something seasonal or specialty. I did get the purple haze which was delicious, but my boyfriend just go regular coffee when he would have gotten something special if it was available.
