Customer Reviews

"I love sambussas. My favorite is the coconut flavor. It's so tasty, unbelievable. I go to the Farmer's Market every chance I get and stock up for the whole week."

- Lina, Vista

"I look forward to the market every week. My little ritual is to buy a selection of sambussas, or sometimes one of the combo dishes, and enjoy them while sitting on the sidewalk watching all the people coming and going."

- Joel, Ocean Beach

"RED has great options for vegetarians: Potato, Lentil, Spinach, and Coconut Cream - each of them bursting with flavor."

- Ryan, Normal Heights

"RED’s sambusas are excellent. Light, flaky crust on the outside. Perfectly seasoned filling on the inside. Great for a snack or appetizer."

- Jason, Ocean Beach

"The sambusas at Red are delicious and fresh, what I love most is how they incorporate new flavors and ingredients while maintaining authenticity. I could eat them every day."
