How our name came to be:
On September 13, 1996, we opened our doors, and not long after, artist and spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy offered our fledgling business this lofty name. Because we view life's challenges and adventures as a means of transcending our limitations, the name has an inner symbolic meaning for us. We hope that this shines through in our menu, our food preparation and our customer service.
Perfection - an ever-evolving reality of increasing beauty, fullness and richness in all aspects of life.
Satisfaction - a sense of fulfilment through following our hearts dreams and manifesting these dreams in our outer actions.
Promise - like a river of solid hope where all good and beautiful things are possible... in their own time.
