  1. Had lunch at Golden Bell Korean last Thursday…while there our car was towed away! and, even though it was our first time there, the owner, Soon, asked her husband, MinSoo, (sp?) to drive us to retrieve it, even though it was noon…prime lunch time…now, that is service above and beyond…thanks to you both for being so generous and caring…yes, and the food was beyond yummy, tasty chicken and beef ribs…we will definitely be back!

  3. also, Tamnak Thai doesn’t no longer seems to have the Thai chefs; the food is no longer as authentic as it used to be years ago and, as essential as limes are to Thai cooking, the last time we were there they did not have any, not even rough lemons! they also, no longer have authentic Thai sauces, no Thai chilies used

  4. Hi, I just wanted you to know that the Tamnak Thai lunch special at $95 is no longer on, its now $135 so you should consider revising the information that you have up under prix fixe lunch
