    The food was AMAZING. The volume of the restaurant was absurdly loud. Very unpleasant. The music was so loud everyone was screaming at their tables.

    For a sunday night, there were 3 tables or roughly 10 people including us two. Service was quite slow. On top of the loud music they were playing cooking shows on the 4 TVs which was puzzling. Then, for 16-20$ a “specialty roll” and 12-15$ for regular rolls. They were all underwhelming. way too much for the quality/ taste. Honestly the only good part was the spicy miso soup. Sadly will not be going back even though I live across the street.

    Good for small parties and tables for larger groups. A little dimmer than expected, so pretty good for an early-date spot or catching up with a group of friends before a night out. Delisious selection of many Asian styles to satisfy everyone. Lively wall-art reminds of Katsushika Hokusai's wave depiction!

    Absolutely a HORRIBLE dining experience. Reservations for 8:00 PM. Waited in line to check in took 30 minutes. 1 hostess who was also cleaning tables and taking orders. Once seated we waited another 30 minutes. A server never came to our table. We got up and left. This restaurant should be ashamed of how they “run” things.

    Hello, thank you for dining with us and we apologize for not meeting your expectations. We openly recognize we've had operational challenges and staff shortages especially highlighted by the surprising guest show out for restaurant week which has decreased the guest experience and increased our service times. We're taking the lessons learned from this and our addressing as we head into the last weekend of restaurant week. If you have any further feedback, please email us in the email provided in our private reply
