Still prefer their previous Happy Hour items. The new selections are not as good. Especially the change in the flavor of their Sticky Ribs. The patty in the Bao Bun is very dry this time around. Food flavor got worse when the price went up. Had they kept the same items and flavor with the increased pricing ... I will have been happier.

Had the botanist bowl - should’ve known better than to order a healthy bowl at a pubby place! Not really any sauce. Dry. Added grilled chicken and it was dry bc it was over cooked. I won’t be ordering this again. Other ppl’s food looked good so I’d still give it another shot.

I received no request for review last time so write here now. I ordered grilled chicken burger & tuna burger asking to avoid burnt meats because I hate that burnt meat taste. However, finally both chicken & tuna meats had burnt marks that tasted bitter. I had to use knife to cut those marks to enjoy the meats' good taste.

A great place to come for Happy Hour. We prefer smaller portions of a variety of appetizers, really enjoyed the selection offered. The menu changes sometimes but always a good variety at an excellent price. Also decided to try the bar drink offered as we always order wine, it was a refreshing change, All I all a great way to spend Friday evening.

Birthday. Server was very nice. Food was delicious but it could have been a little hotter. Ahi Tuna cooked to the way we wanted it. Rare and it was perfect. Prawns and squid were delicious as well. We were there during Thursday Night Football. MC seems very nice and actually gave us ballots to enter the giveaway draw. Overall, a great night out. Great to be back.

First impression handicap parking a long way from the wheel chair ramp and you have to walk up a long hill to get to the restaurant. Options for substitutions limited. The serving of the seafood linguini was so small it covered only 20% or so of the plate and the small piece of garlic toast was burnt. You have to read the menu very closely as they have changed the name of rose sauce to "Arora" sauce with no explanation from the waitress. The flavor of the meal did not make up for the small quantity. I highly recommend that anyone who is disabled look for another place to eat.

My friend and I went for lunch on Tuesday and had a fantastic meal, outstanding service and a wonderful visit. The bonus was that it was Happy Hour all day Tuesday, and the food was not only beautifully prepared and delicious, but also cheap as anything. A couple of our lunchtime favorites are the Tomato soup and grilled cheese and the flatbreads. Yum, We’ve been there several times before Covid and will go back again time and time again. We ate inside this time but the patio is open and very spacious. I highly recommend Personas!
