I can understand if the restaurant was extremely busy but we spent over 2hrs waiting, eating, waiting, eating. Seems like it took forever because the restaurant was unprepared for the holiday weekend. Some of the meat came out semi-frozen. Better service is needed.

I had a reservation for 8:30pm, I arrived at 8:15pm, they told me that my table would be ready in 20 minutes. They took me in at 9:30pm.

I want to say this experience was a very unique one but an awesome one. It was my hubby’s birthday and I decided I wanted to do something different for a change. I invited some friends to join in the celebration at last minute. The restaurant was accommodating and found us a nice setup. The menu is a little intimidating but the all you can eat option was probably the best choice. We chose the premium all you can eat. The idea of cooking your own food was new to us but can I say this was so much fun. My hubby does not cook at home but during this experience he actually took the lead and enjoyed it. We had unlimited assortments of garlic, chicken and steak. The drinks are delicious. I had the forbidden punch and my friend had the Geisha. Overall it was a unique but fun experience. They sang Happy Birthday to my hubby- very nice touch to the end of our meal. I recommend this place if you are looking for a very social experience- boring people need not come here.

Would not honor Open Table gift card for the full amount of $100. Did not make any sense at all. This is the 2nd time going through this.

Usually, the service is good and the bathroom are clean. But this time, no one changed the grill do most of the later meat was burned. And it was hard to anyone's attention. This us the eighth I have been to this location and the quality and service has gone downhill.

Good food at very reasonable prices, especially during happy hour (which is most of the day).
Service is a little inconsistent although attitude is generally good.

The spicy cabbage salad, miso skirt steak and the garlic chicken breast were phenomenal. The service was average. Seemed to be confusion between them and the kitchen because we waited a while for appetizers and tea only for them to come back 20 minutes later and tell us they were all out. Would only come back for the food. Nothing else.

It was my first time at this restaurant I thought the service was great the food was ok - however I was not impressed with the sanitary at the restroom s
To me it’s important that the rest room conditions reflect the conditions in the kitchen. I ve managed restaurant s for many yrs I know

Food was good and abundant. Service was friendly. Environment is very noisy. Only gave 3 stars for food because one person became so sick after drinking the hot tea that they could not eat one bite of food. Maybe it was really old or someone was playing a joke? Was there twice in the past and had no problems but didn’t drink the tea.

It took a while to get our seats but we were compensated with a free drink each which was great! Our waiter, wish I could remember his name was great really went above and beyond! Food was great! Seatings a little tight, but because this place is so popular! Final note after a year of looking for good ramen that doesn’t taste like soap water I have finally ended my search, the spicy ramen here was everything!
