SLOW service, great food - Edit

The food here is really good, but you'll wait a really, really long time before you get it. Apparently it's protocol to call an order ahead about an hour before you want to eat. When I visited, I was passing through the city on my way back to Atlanta and was eager to get back on the road. I ended up waiting 40 minutes for them to make me a salad. I ate raw key lime ice cream while I waited, and that was delicious. I went up to the counter to ask a question and they all freaked out and yelled at me and told me to sit back down. So service could be a bit better. There were people seated in the restaurant when I came in to place my to go order, too, and though I'm not sure when they arrived, it was a good 20 minutes after I arrived that they got water. That experience being what it was, the food was amazing. They really have their flavor profiles down here. I'd recommend it because of the great food, but it is expensive (as most raw food is) and that service/wait time could use a little help.
Also- the restaurant is located at the back of the building under an empty sign. Kind of hard to spot!

delicious food, peaceful atmosphere - Edit

Owners are very nice and know what they're doing. The menu changes daily so it's never boring. Me and my mother ordered the vegan pizza and hummus rolls which we thoroughly enjoyed. Even my mom, who was absolutely terrified trying a vegan restaurant for the first time, agreed it was the most delicious pizza she's ever eaten. And that's coming from someone who used to order Pizza Hut every other weekend!
Other than their amazing raw options, we also agreed that the hummus on the rolls were extrrrreeeeeemly salty. It was like dipping our tongues in a Himalayan pink salt shaker, and I can't handle a single grain of those! Maybe it's because we don't normally incorporate a lot of salt/oil in our diet, but we really wish some of their dishes on the menu would have less of it. They would taste just good without it, and I'd appreciate not having bad bloating after eating the otherwise really good food. Would recommend and come back myself!

Jlmosman 23 Aug 2014 - Food is such experience. Personal attention is provided to each individual dish. Worth taking your time, and experiencing. I have also experienced cooking class - I am so glad Chef Saa has pursued her vision to share her love of nutrition with Columbia, SC.
