    This food was good and quick and inexpensive. It's good for a quick business lunch or when there's not much time in the day.

    It's better than Chinese takeout. Quick and cheap doesn't hurt either. I suggest the crab and cheese rolls.

    Good Food - Jerk Management

    I used to work across the street from this place in Midtown, so I hit it for lunch quite a bit. Food was good, but the frizzy hair management guy was a true turd. Here was the story: They were slammed for lunch one day, so me and my friends just ordered ours to-go. As we were getting our meals, a table opened up, so we decided to sit down and eat-in instead. The short frizzy hair management guy didn't like this. He got in a tizzy over this, explaining (or in my opinion lying) how the Atlanta city goverment fines him for customers who get their food to go, then eat in. For me, I could care less. Ala Seinfeld, I banned them for a year, then eventually went back cause I couldn't stand going to Woe's, oops, excuse me, Moe's nasty burrito shop anymore.

    Priced right, very popular at lunch with Georgia Tech folk - get in line early. Order take out or grab a table outdoors if you dislike echoes of chairs against concrete and dishes rattling - the industrial hip setting gets very noisy.

    A favorite, & cheap to boot

    This is my fallback restaurant. I adore this place. The menu is super veg friendly. You can substitute tofu for meat with anything on the menu. Their little wraps (like the teriyaki) make for great vegetarian junk food (since they tend to be a litttle greasy... yum.) They have excellent basil rolls, that come with your choice of sauces. Go for the tamarind! I could drink that stuff. Veggie fast food? I'm sold. My favorite dish is the panag with tofu. Much more sweet than you'd normally find, but it works for me. Prices are cheap, cheap, cheap. The decor is super trendy industrial, & unabashedly so. It looks great. The clunky metal tables & chairs are a bit much, as you hear screeching whenever someone moves their chair across the floor. Why is it called Tin Drum? Google the phrase & you'll see lots of possibilities. But I think the huge mural of David Sylvian on the left wall gives it away. Tin Drum was his band Japan's last album (1981) before the group split. If I'm not mistaken the mural is a picture of Sylvian from the album, eating his rice bowl with chopsticks. That alone makes me want to give 5 stars. But all the other stuff I mentioned is great, too.

    Cheap and modern Asian food

    I go to their location near the perimeter mall. Overall the food is good, but if I may suggest, their Japanese curry should come with Japanese rice. I enjoy the noodle dishes. It is a great place for casual Asian dining.

    Affordable and flavorful

    Some spicy, some not, but usually nice dishes. Noodles, rice, rolls with a twist. Good for a regular night out. Sad they stopped serving bubble tea. The service is friendly but their system needs tweaking as they ask for a name but it gets confusing and we've gotten the wrong food at least twice.
