Re: “Aladdin Café

I enjoy the authentic middle eastern cuisine each time I eat at the Aladdin Café. The lentil soup is out of this world and remember their hummus appetizer is made from scratch taste just like you are in restaurant corner in one of the street of Beirut. Awesome.

Re: “Aladdin Café

The best affordable restaurant in Kansas City. The food is great, their Hummus is the best in the United states in my opinion. Very healthy and good service. Good Job

Re: “Taco Bueno

The single worst meal I've eaten in the past decade.

My wife and I swung through Taco Bueno last night around 8:30PM for a few tacos and some chips as we were sort of in a hurry to get to a friend's place to watch a fight on TV.

I ordered 2 veggie burritos, 1 steak soft taco, and some chips n' queso. The price was acceptable - 10 bucks. The gentleman at the window handed us our bag of food and said "Come on back n' see us!". Welp, I can tell you right now that I'll never be "seeing ya" ever again in my life. I'd rather starve to death.

Here are my issues:

- We took the taco/burritos out of the bag, and the paper wrap around them was sopping and dripping like a baby's soiled diaper, all over my car and onto my lap. ALL OF the food was terribly wrapped and sopping all over the place. The burritos weren't even wrapped. It was a loosely soggy mess. The interior of my car is covered in disgusting swampy black beans and sauce. Thanks for that!

-After having to deal with all that, we gave the food a chance. The burritos were filled with bland beans, very little sauce, and overcooked *crunchy* rice. I took about 2 bites and literally threw it out of the window as I passed a raucous Kauffman Stadium. Worst burrito I've ever had. My wife had one bite and tossed hers.

-Then I moved on to the soft steak taco. It was pretty much a Hail Mary at that point because I had just played a rock n' roll show at Blue Springs Fall Fest and probably burned 1000 calories - I was pretty hungry and in need of sustenance. Anyway, the steak taco was cold, bland and flaccid. Just no effort whatsoever put into the preparation or food at all. I realize it's fast food, but we were hoping for a little bit better than Taco Bell. Just for the record, it was worse than any Taco Bell meal I've ever eaten. So, in summary, the Taco and burritos ended up on the George Brett Super Highway.

-The small chips n' queso were ok. Definitely worth the 1.79 we spent on them. The guy at the window was friendly but rushed us out of there. He and whoever was in the kitchen clearly didn't care about the food they were handing out representing your establishment. You were also out of cinnamon chips.

I've got half the mind to call and send Taco Bueno the bill for shampooing and cleaning the interior of my trashed car for the mess their food created. Lazy work. Wlil not be visiting this or ANY Taco Bueno ever again as long as I live.

Re: “Dos de Oros

Excellent food, service and ice cream! Try the coconut ice cream, and the tequila ice cream. (non-alcoholic). Not the cloying sweet and rich American style ice cream, but rather grainy and pure delicioso!
The Pozole is the best, be sure to add lime and cilantro and put the meat chunks into the corn tortillas and chow down as you spoon up the soup.
Please go, the crowds keep getting larger and larger, join in with those of us who love dos de oros!

Re: “Le Monde Bakery

Amazing bakery, with even better staff. My favorite for lunch is the spring rolls, my boyfriend LOVES the chicken curry soup. We meet for lunch at least once a month here!

Re: “Guichos Mexican Grill and Cantina

Restaurant has been closed since 2011. Torn down and replaced by a tire store.

Re: “China One

Sadly China One has closed. IMHO it had the best Crab Rangoon vs Fusion buffet.Friendly service as well sad to see them go.

Re: “Kababesh Grill

The prices are too high. Now they have started adding hidden fees if you take a big group. They charge you 20% party price and buffet is also more expensive for bigger groups even though the items remain same. I do not understand this logic.

Re: “Nara

All I can say is that nobody should ever read reviews of a restaurant, including my review.
The negative reviews of Nara MUST be from competitors because the stories are impossible.
Nara is the best. Period. Great location. The best wait staff in the city. And hands down the best sushi in the city. Go there and find out for your self. And never read a restaurant review again.

Re: “Sutera's Italian Restaurant

We just ate there tonight. Lasagne was good, but that's about it. After we were served we asked about the bread that was supposed to come with. The waitress said "we're out of bread". Out of bread??? At an Italian restaurant???? Hell, there's a grocery store nearby! Of course, no compensation for the lack of bread. During the meal when I needed a refill, I had to flag a different waitress down because ours was sitting in the dining room playing with her phone. Definately not going back. So many more restaurants to choose from that are reliable.

Re: “Awaze

One of the best places to get an East African and Caribbean Fusion. All of the dishes are exquisite, but my personal favorites are the red snapper and vegetable sambussas. The mix of flavors will enlighten your taste buds. Definitely a must try.

Re: “Panzon's

This place was absolutely terrible. When we arrived, there were several people waiting to be seated, yet there were no employees up front to help them. After about 10 minutes, some one showed up and started taking people to tables. After we were seated it took an additional 10 minutes for a server to come take our order. 15 minutes later she came back to tell us that she had lost our orders, so we had to order a second time. When our food finally arrived, it looked disgusting, and tasted bland. I will never be returning to this restaurant, and I suggest anyone thinking about going to stay well clear.

Re: “The Burg & Barrel

Re: “Chaz on the Plaza

The lounge has jazz all but one night a week. No cover. A smaller menu from a very good kitchen is great. Staff nice and personable. Outdoor space fun and in summer there is string concerts on the green and in winter a couple of fire pits. Seasonal drinks for summer. A great place to start the evening or end an evening.

Re: “Open Road Bar and Grill

The number listed is wrong, that is the number to my office, Dahmer Construction Services, and we keep getting calls from people trying to contact Open Road. Please change this. Thank you.

Re: “Peanches Food & Wine

Is this place still open? I thought the owner/chef/marketingdirector/mrknowitall ran off the last 3 customers that would even go there. I gave it a star because I think the name is so catchy

Re: “Nara

Wow - thought maybe Nara needed a current review. This place is class act. I dine there often and always get knowledgeable staff and servers. They are friendly and know what they are selling. The food; the sushi is freshest in town and the two sushi chefs are from Japan and entertain as well as create a beautiful plate. I have started to try the kitchen menu with Chef Max being their creator - OMG - the flavor of these items are amazing. I have never had a bad meal and the prices are adequate to the portions. They are huge. Not sure what others are missing - but Nara is a great place to dine and enjoy dinner with friends or a date.
