    Review: We could smell the oils from the street as they were cooking inside. The place looked very nice and was decorated for Valentine’s Day. The massaman curry with chicken was delicious. The Thai iced tea sweet I’m very good as well. Definitely recommend this place and we’ll be coming back again soon hopefully.

    Review: If you’re looking for an amazing Japanese restaurant in town, then check out Sakura 15! This place has some of the best Japanese cuisine around, and their Spicy Miso Ramen is one of their specialties. The ramen is perfect, with just the right amount of spice, and the char-siu pork is tender and flavorful. My friend Casey ordered the Pho, and it looked delicious! The atmosphere here is also great – it’s cozy, casual, and inviting. Overall, Sakura 15 is a great restaurant that I would highly recommend!

I met with Jordan and we talked about all the food in Bloomington. We agreed that Verona is a great place and Jordan really enjoyed the cinnamon rolls, the scone, and the coffee drink. I was really happy to find out that the coffee refill was free when you are dining in. The Wi-Fi was really fast and worked well. What a great place to start the day.
