    I’ve been to the Kava Bar in Rancho Cordova 3 times when I get my hair set next door- the prices are ridiculously high! The first 2 times my drinks were bitter and gross but I thought I’d give it another try, and again it was really gross, I had mentioned to the gal why is it so bitter she said well “ Obviously you better go to Starbucks if you want something tasty” she was rude and very annoyed about my question, I went 3 times giving the benefit of the doubt and then to top it off deal with a rude employee, nevertheless I will NOT be going back and I do live in the Gold River Community and I will be letting our community know about the taste and type of service you get at our monthly meeting!!
    Minus O for service
    1 for taste
    2 for atmosphere
    4 for convenient location
    5 for the set up inside and outside on patio

    I visited this kava bar last week, and it was the perfect place to chill and relax. The vibe was great, and the staff was friendly. I recommend trying the Bali tea if you’re looking for something energizing. Overall, great experience!

    I was really disappointed with my experience at this kava bar. The staff was rude, and the kava was weak and tasteless. I won’t be returning.

    I had high hopes for this kava bar, but I was a bit underwhelmed. The kava was good, but the atmosphere was a bit too quiet for my taste. Still, the staff was friendly, and the drinks were reasonably priced.

    The kava here is fantastic, but the prices are way too high. I understand that it’s a unique drink, but $11 for a small cup is a bit much. Still, the atmosphere is nice, and the staff is friendly.

    The kava here is good, but the service can be hit or miss. Sometimes the staff is friendly and helpful, and other times they seem annoyed and uninterested. Still, the drinks are reasonably priced, and the atmosphere is nice.
