Place is hysterical. Visited four separate occasions over the years. The first time I visited my friend insisted I try it. Damp, smells like a mix of patchouli/farts, and soup. The food is interesting.I asked how the whole thing worked and servers tell me ""you pay what you feel the food is worth sister."" So try a field greens salad with oil. The salad small on a salad plate. I asked the counter server what he felt was fair and he replied ""Well, like, we hope that you would give us a twenty."" I told him that I didnt plan on spending that much for a salad, and that I had five dollars."" At least he said thanks.\r
Second time I gave them $8 dollars for a soup w/bread, I feel that was enough to cover the soup +tip. (Big City Soup charges $4.95 for a really nice gourmet soup w/bread, and I add tip to that). My friend paid the same, she felt that was plenty also. These last two times . If you pay before they plate your food they will give you tiny portions. Which was fine. I thought they run out fast. No not the case. Leaving this time local salt laker who is notorious for charging ludicrous amounts for his profession-and then throwing his money all around service places in Salt Lake City valley. These dread dudes LOADED UP this guy's plate. It was truly asinine. The last time final time, same portioning happened to us, dont ask for more!! Do not ask them to repeat daily dish if you didn't pay a ""fair price"" Since they don't give you a guideline on what their food really costs them, it's their own fault to hold resentments towards their guests by their lack of communication. Service industry enviroment knows you cannot rely on your guests to calculate organic groceries/tips if original amount is unknown. I have my live my own benevolence. I leave this place the 4th time feeling like these guys shouldnt use budda and semi-altruistism as their platform. I strongly disagree the practice.That if they don't have a price at all, then people will pay more. Very transparent.
