Quaint and quirky, with excellent smiling service and outdoor seating. Food was delicious and plenty. Locating this place might be tricky. Had good experience, will revisit again and recommend. Good job folks.

The food was outstanding. I've never eaten a sandwich so quickly. The fries and dipping sauce were excellent. The peach shake was homemade and tasty, but maybe a little chunky for my taste. The service was friendly and fast. The only thing that could be improved is the amount of flies around the outdoor seating; maybe some traps or other preventative measures would help. Definitely will still be going back many times

The Blackberry Cobbler shake was delicious. It was fairly simple but made well. The Ko'jangles fries could be considered mandatory. They were perfect. My spicy tofu bowl was pretty good. It definitely wasn't spicy. I would try something different next time. The food seemed a bit overpriced. The only seating available is the metal patio furniture on the sidewalk in front of the building.

KoKyu - this was interesting! I'd love to know more about how this place came to be. First, there is no indoor seating - sit outside or takeaway. Second, you read the menu and order from your phone, but people are still there to help and serve you. And everyone is nice, helpfully, and genuinely down to earth. The food was awesome! Thai chop chop was crunchy and full of fresh flavors - cilantro, mint, and the kimchi-lime vinaigrette - pallet cleanser. The Baht Mi hit all the right elements - bread that crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, a little heat, melt in your mouth short rib, pickled veg. to cut thru the fat. The side of kimchi daikon is a great addition to add texture and acid - another pallet cleanser. The iced horchata had great flavor - I would have preferred a texture that is less grainy from the ice. It was close to slushy texture and that would have been ideal - so would have been a shot of dark rum in the mix 😅. Oh, and you get one free refill on the iced drinks! Selection of beers on draft are diverse and reasonably priced. $13 for a 55 oz. pitcher of Paulaner Hefe - if someone else was with me, sign me up. There is an even wider variety of cans/bottles - the world is your oyster at this place! Feel like wine, they've got you covered too. NA options - no problem, my friend. As the Arnold would say, I'll be back.

Burnt end Nachos were so amazing! Definitely enough for 2 people. Came with large size of queso. Tables outside were so nice and the staff were very friendly.

A coworker introduced me to this spot. The first time, she ordered pick up at our job so I only got to taste the food. We went again but we went to eat there. There is no inside eating but they have a handful of tables for outdoor eating. The server was incredibly friendly! Menu and ordering is accessible online. I forgot what I had the first time but regardless, I have not been disappointed yet. The flavors are amazing! When you see the food, you taste what you see: the bright vivid colors translate into bursting flavors. Normally I have more to say, but here, the food speaks for itself. This spot is fantastic and highly recommend others to try it!

I don’t say this lightly, but this is one of the top 3 restaurants in the Triangle! It is disappointed that they no longer have dine-in seating (that should be updated on the Google profile for the place), but even with just outdoor seating or take-out, the food is AMAZING!! I got the pork belly rice bowl and it had a perfect blend of charred, seasoned pork with sweet and slightly spicy sauce. We also got the Brussels sprouts, which legitimately stole the show on their own! Loved their crispy rice coating and rich glaze. The sweet potato fries were also incredible. Oh, and then there’s the Horchata freeze!! Perfect pairing for the slight heat of most dishes. Will be back many, many times!

Cute outdoor venue with so many menu options. Everything looked so good! I had the cabbage salad and an IPA. Also they have amazing Banh Mi sandwiches. Overall, good vibes, good beer and food, and attentive service. Highly recommend.
