OpenTable Diner 
Dined on January 16, 2018

Tasty food based on your own seasoning that you’re able to add...loved the variety of rice and different noodles. Also loved the variety of protein like chicken, beef, fish, shrimp, and calamari. Based on the rice, etc bowl and the tiny bowl for meat, etc., the amount of food looks sparse but once stir fried, you end up with a really good sized white bowl. Very filling! My only peeve was that an employee kept trying to clean around the containers that held all of the ingredients that customers were trying to dip into. She was getting in the way and slowing down the line. Other than that, loved the food and we’ll be back since my son loves the concept of picking his own food😀👍🏾

It’s not the same as it was when it was called The Real Chow Baby. I miss the location that was on Howell Mill Rd. The selection was a little better, they offered salmon as well as the shrimp being a little bigger. Some of the sauces were missing also.

I am Disgusted. Went with my family for my birthday I did not receive my food At All..... Anna the manager on duty who Needs to be FIRED!! Does not communicate properly. I WAITED 2 F@#%$ HOURS for my food to arrive. I am still waiting for my food. I was literally disappointed, all she had to say was that the kitchen mixed up my food and for me to remake my bowl. She kept saying " your food would be out soon" . The disappointment was so real.

Good as always. We made reservations for 5:30 on a Thursday evening because we had tickets for a 7 p.m. show at the Cobb Energy Center. I usually go here for lunch and it is almost always packed. Did not need reservations for that early - at least during the week. Upside was that it was nice and quiet for conversation and no lines for the food. Can't think of a downside. The crowd had started picking up when we left. Note - put at least twice the amount of sauce on your food as you think you need.

We arrived right at 11am, best time so far, by 1130 you couldn't hear yourself think almost every table was filled great lunch spot!!! Service is great out waitress (Alissa I believe) was great didn't rush us and came around just often enough. The place was packed by the time we asked for our check, she was busy but cashed us out in a timely manner. I love this place it's my husbands and I's go to day date place.

My boyfriend and I were in Smyrna to attend a seminar and I wanted to surprise him with a vegetarian spot. My Google search suggested this restaurant. I'm glad I followed the suggestion,
the food was great. This restaurant reminded me of the old "Chow Baby" that was on Ponce.
My Boo was delighted also because is pallet was tantalized with all of the veggie the selections too. The best part was it was all you can eat!!!
I made reservations thru "Open Table' which was not necessary on our Thursday night visit.
I will go again and will recommend this to everyone!

It took over 40 minutes to bring out the food. And, there were times when we could see that nothing was on the grill. During the wait, the background was noisy and frenetic. The manager on duty did what she could to expedite matters and even gave us a credit on our bill. It’s too bad because the food was good.
