With one of the broadest menus of authentic Chinese in the metro area, this little eatery has a well-earned reputation for super-fast delivery. It is just a shade more expensive than your average Chinese take-out, but the first bite will let you know why. The decor totals not much more than a counter and a kitchen, so call for delivery or pick-up. Menu items can be ordered spicy or extra spicy. Groups of three or more can select from the family dinner ensembles and save some money.
This eatery serves some of the most innovative and fresh pizzas in town. Blue Moon Pizza oozes vibrancy and makes a blatant claim of wanting to remain an illogical pizza joint. Go for the hand-tossed variety or the thin crust ones, they are all good, complete with large portions of fresh and generous toppings. The Greek Pizza is quite a crowd-puller here and so are the house made desserts. The blue walls and serene blue lights infuse an enchanting glow. All of this with an open patio, an upbeat bar(with a good stock of martinis) and televised sports. Pizza joints just got better!
This sushi spot is gaining in popularity just about as fast as sushi is becoming an American standard. Umezono is an unassuming, intimate Japanese restaurant with limited seating. The best spot in the house is at the sushi bar, where guests watch the chef roll out pretty pickings. Beer and wine is available, and there is smoking in designated areas. If you want to take lunch or dinner home, grab a menu and go.
This popular spot is central to the businesses of Marietta, but it is as well known for its family-friendly environment as for its hasty business luncheons. Simple and straightforward, it's the food much more than the decor that sets this place apart from a hundred other Chinese establishments. Faced with a menu as expansive and imposing as the Great Wall itself, you might just have a hard time choosing. Traditional favorites such as chicken with cashews, Moo Shu pork and Moo Goo Gai Pan are also available.
Those hailing from Szechuan may question the authenticity of the cuisine at Tasty China, but food lovers will only love it! Diners frequenting the restaurant are fond of the spicy, juicy Chinese offerings. Surprisingly cheap, it ranks among the top-rated Chinese restaurants in Marietta. Noodle Soup with Beef or Wu Dang Carbanado, the Hunan Stir-Fried Fish are all typical Chinese.
Siam Square Thai Cuisine serves a wide variety of traditional Thai dishes in a popular urban setting and has quickly become a local favorite. With a strong emphasis on maintaining excellent service and a comfortable atmosphere, this is a great choice for a relaxing meal with friends. Plus, the staff is willing to modify each dish to order so that all customers can make sure they are getting exactly what they want. Some of the favorite dishes include the Pad Thai and Spicy Basil Chicken.
Frantic and fun, this sprawling Cobb County restaurant brings the best of bayou excitement and food to Atlanta. Families and business groups alike flock to the big, shanty-themed dining room, and the noise level is usually through the roof, even next to the serene bubbling waterfall. Low country regional specials headline the menu, including jambalaya and a very spicy Cajun crawfish platter. A lively bar and expansive patio make the place very popular with the after-work crowd, as well.
The laid-back attitude at El Ranchero creates a great atmosphere for fine, affordable dining. You'll feel as though you've stepped into an old desert cantina, whether nestled in a booth in the back room, or front and center at a table near the door. Enjoy the dim, cool environment with a margarita from the bar while you wait for your order. With most entrees being easy to the pocket, you can afford to treat the crowd once in a while. Great frijoles and fajitas headline a menu of authentic Mexican winners.
A lively atmosphere pervades this enormous Marietta hotspot, from the margarita drinkers on the patio to the festive diners being serenaded by a four-piece Mariachi band inside. The house specialty is the steak and chicken fajita plate; you can either order for one, or else get it by the pound for sharing. Dozens of combination platters offer most traditional Mexican fare in invariably enormous portions. Try the fried ice cream to top off your meal, but be warned, it is big enough to share.
Throughout Atlanta, the deli with the funny name continues to please with great sandwiches, salads and pizzas. All sandwiches arrive served on Schlotzsky's signature muffuletta bread - enormous round buns that somewhat resemble a large, soft English muffin. The eight-inch (20-centimeter) pizzas are great for one and come prepared on a unique sourdough crust, while larger items such as pesto chicken are also popular. Your basic deli layout is scaled up a bit for a greater degree of dining comfort, but most still take their sandwiches to go. See website for menu and other locations.
Tassa Roti Shop is a one of the few and best places to try Caribbean cuisine. The food served here has a strong influence from the Trinidad-Tobago cuisine. At this restaurant, you can choose to have the roti and curries or settle for the combination meal that is an assorted platter of traditional dishes. Be it someone of Caribbean origin or a curious diner game to experiment, guests are sure to feel satisfied with every meal. A relaxed ambiance and a friendly staff to serve great food, all this combine a memorable culinary experience that will make you come back for more.
The result of years of culinary experience in Japan, Yakitori Jinbei is pleasing Atlanta with traditional charcoal-grilled meat skewers. The charcoal used, binchotan, is a special kind that burns at a high temperature, and Yakitori Jinbei imports it directly from Japan. Alongside sushi and tempura, yakitori (grilled skewers of chicken, beef, pork, and vegetables) is one of the most popular foods of Japan and at this restaurant. Here, they are also known for dishes other than their namesake, like the sushi (try the famous Kondo Roll) and the ramen bowls, like the Tonkatsu Ramen with roast pork. This small restaurant offers big flavor, but if you're bringing a group, make a reservation.
