Avoid the long line

Not always, but sometimes they have long line in front of their store, so it takes like 20min to enter.

So it might be a better idea to come with enough free time, instead of coming here when you are in rush.

Or you should avoid the crowded time like in the middle of weekdays lunch time.

If you have a long line after you, then you might feel pressure from your back saying hurry up and finish your meal. But you know, eating hot and spicy food in a rush is quite difficult.
