Mo Mo Ya Japanese Restaurant in Buford has good food, and huge portions, but the atmosphere is a little dated. I ate here last weekend; it wasn't very busy - the service was great, and the food was tasty, it was just a little dark and dated to me. As far as the portions... I don't believe we have ever received so much food (rice and meat!) at another Japanese restaurant... we had so much extra food to take home.
Buckhead Life Restaurant Group is definitely the best group of restaurants in Atlanta!! My favorite restaurant in this group is Chops/Lobster Bar!! The atmosphere is so nice and the service is truly unbelievable. We have going to these restaurants for 5 years or so and have NEVER been disappointed!! It definitely deserves 5 stars and many many recommendations!!
The Standard is great for lunch and is great for after-work drinks. Old gas station turned restaurant makes for a neat atmosphere. They have great burgers and fries, and great salads.
Fellini's has some of the best pizza around (with crunchy crust, which is a favorite of mine!)!! The restaurant is always laid back and welcoming. I've met friends at Fellini's for a quick dinner or a dinner meeting... it's great for any kind of get together.
Starfish is a great place to go for delicious sushi!! The atmosphere is so great and the staff is friendly! It can be a great hangout, or somewhere to stop for a fast meal. I would definitely recommend it!!
Treehouse is a great place to go after work for a quick drink with friends. The atmosphere is great, especially outside on the porch!! The servers are cool and the drinks are great. It's definitely a favorite hangout around the office!
Mo Mo Ya Japanese Restaurant is conveniently located (for me at least) and always has good food and friendly service! It has a nice family atmosphere and good energy. The servings are huge and are definitely big enough to share.
Landmark Diner is a great place to get away and study, while having a good meal. Right in the middle of Georgia State's campus, it's a nice oasis. Also, since they're opened 24 hours, you can study here anytime!! And the servers don't seem to mind!
Mama Mia Pizza is a favorite lunch spot for me. The service is fast and the food is good. I always get the lunch combo, which includes a slice of pizza, side salad, and drink... for less than $5!
J Christophers is a great place for breakfast or lunch!! Breakfast is my favorite meal, so I'm a huge fan!! Their breakfast parfaits are excellent and their cinnamon rolls are so yummy!! They have choices galore, including a nice-sized healthy section.
