Is Honeygrow any good?

One of my family members wants to go and I was wondering what people on the board think about it. I really like Cheu but I think I will be disappointed with Honeygrow. What do you think?

  1. I've only been to the Bala location but I liked it. I wouldn't call it a destination spot or even that special, but it has a clean look and good ingredients. I like creating your own salad. I think they have some good juices if you're into that. They're right on the precipice of nailing the organic green vibe but you can tell don't get it all the way.

      Thanks...any idea if the stir fry is good there?

    2. Not sure why you'd even mention the two in the same post. Totally different kinds of restaurants. I have only been in the Bala location of Honeygrow, but it has the look and feel of a nicer fast food restaurant--think Chipotle, etc. The high tech ordering is cool, and the food is fresh, with good ingredients, but still basically fast food, nothing complex or creative like the food at Cheu.

        My intuition told me that but I figured I would just double check. Thanks a lot!

      2. I just love it for a quick lunch. I love that I can pick exactly what ingredients I want in a dish and they have great options. I would not say it is a destination.
