  1. This place is sh¡t, it’s way to over priced for a small portion of food oh btw I’m talking about the Poki, they serve you so so little food for 12.00 and that’s for regular size. There’s another Poki near Buena Park mall and they serve you a lot for a great cheaper price. But what I’m saying is if you want to enjoy your food and save money go to poki near Buena Park mall cause this place is shit.
