Ate dinner here tonight and food was delish and service was great. I was quite astonished however that the $14 curry taco meal was ONE small taco with no side. Not enough for a small child. I think you should clarify On your menu that the portion is extremely small.

Sunspot Restaurant

Amazing menu and great draft selection (40 taps!). Comfortable, casual ambiance. Really friendly staff. Ample parking is usually available behind the building. Sunspot has been a fixture of The Strip for decades.
Enjoyed a vegan option. The tofu corn tortilla taco with curry was good. You only get one though for $6 and I had a salad with grilled eggplant and citrus dressing. Very satisfied with this option.
It can’t get better than sunspot. You can legitimately get anything on the menu and it’s guaranteed it will be phenomenal! My favorite is the salmon BLT with sweet potato fries + honey mustard.
They are also VERY allergy friendly. Tons of gluten free options (even separate fryers). I’ve never gotten sick from gluten and I’ve eaten here countless times.
I was in the vicinity and found this place using Google maps and decided to try it. The food was excellent. Service was great. Only thing was the food was a bit pricey but the portion size was good. But so is everything in K-town.

I would eat there again next time I'm in Knoxville.
Curry tofu tacos were on point and the sweet potato waffle fries did not disappoint either. I especially loved that my beer glass was frosted for maximum beer drinking quality.
