    If you're thinking of getting here early to beat the lunch rush, don't bother - the place is filled with DoorDash and other delivery folks picking up for local offices, and you're behind them.

    This is a great place for a lighter meal option (just hold the dressing on the side!).

    Place is way too busy for its own good. Expect to fight for a table and wait in a huge line if you go for lunch.

    Pomona salad: good but less quantity. Didn't fill me up as much as the salads at La Boulange. Also very pricy for the quantity and taste.

    The chipotle chicken sandwich is super tasty, great for a small/medium lunch. If you're looking for something larger, maybe go for a large salad with chicken or fish.

    Kyoto salad is da bomb. Don't go here in a hurry...pretty much EVER. Pad 15 minutes to their estimated time and you'll be happy - this includes order ahead app. Darn good salads!

    they forgot one of my toppings (realized after I left :/). the service of the person at the register was not friendly at all and very off-putting. the salad was still delicious though.

    The Osaka salad is my go-to... Sometimes they skimp on the ahi tuna but overall it is filling. Love that it has brussel sprouts, too!

    Warning to Vegans and the lactose-intolerant: they put yogurt in their hummus. Weirdos.

    My new favorite salad place. I made my own special salad with all the vegan goodness. Note that they can take a while so don't go when you are in a rush. Also, the soup is spectacular.

    They frequently forget ingredients, so Be careful and double check your order before you walk out.

    Order ahead, for gods sake... Or you'll spend your entire lunch waiting for lunch.

    Be diligent that they don't mess up your order. This is the 19th time they've messed up mine. It's unfortunate when you find out they did when you finally get home an hour later. So pathetic.

    Apparently Friday evenings are when they are epically careless with 75% of the orders, therefore holding everything up. I can't believe they still keep shorting people on their orders.

    Always use orderahead app during busy times. Skip the line and go to the cashier to pick up your order. They get very busy and chaotic during lunch in there.

    They have clipboards at the entrance for you to check what you want in your salad. My avocado was rotten though...

    Even if you order take-out with OrderAhead, be prepared to wait an extra 10-15 minutes at lunch time if you order anything other than salads. time of ordering to time of getting food = 60 minutes
