Thanks for the review. Please review China Wok (2633 California Street) next time. And maybe revisit Sufi Coffee Shop since they have apparently taken down their signs since your last review.

Another very odd review/hack job that slams the restaurant and much of the service and food ("scratch is not a well-oiled machine," "entrees are large, but... disappointing." "Shrimp ravioli ($23) were salty." "A huge pork chop ($26) was OK, but the best part was the bed of Brussels sprouts absorbing cider sauce with pecans and bacon." [As if someone is going to run down town to have brussel sprouts!?!], "The signature pizza ($11) was a mess.")
Again, it's funny how this paper reserves some of its harshest and biting criticisms for local privately-owned restaurants that employ people at rock-bottom wages and provide the city much needed tax revenue, but directs very little genuine detailed criticism for the city and school districts' policies, finances, and very generous public employee salaries and benefit packages which are draining the city of taxpayer dollars!
Welcome to Mountain View!

Agree with Observer, another odd and predictably negative restaurant review from the Voice.
Why in their right mind would a writer for the local newspaper trash a brand new restaurant, especially one located at this apparently cursed location?! Just say what was good about the place, and acknowledge that any new restaurant of course has a few rough spots to smooth out.
This article isn't even written very well, kind of rambling and incoherent, and then it just kind of ends, without an ending.
Your readers would appreciate better writing and reviews that are more supportive of local businesses.
