Normally we've had a great experience here. But this time the wait for the food was extremely long. The restaurant wasn't that busy, so we were surprised. The food was good as it normally is. However, we were disappointed with the length of time it took to get our food.

The manager did come over and comp us a couple of drinks as an apology, which was nice.

The entrees/rolls took more than 30 minutes to arrive at our table after ordering.

We went for Valentine’s Day. With the busy holiday in mind, it was quite noisy and busy. The service was kind and quick. We didn’t have to worry about our 2 hour parking expiring. We had a good time and enjoyed the delicious food.

Late seating for a reservation followed by nobody coming to help us for 15-20 minutes for drinks or orders. Ended up leaving without eating. Have been there in the past with good food but service as terrible. Will not being back.

I had made a note on my reservation that I needed to eat Gluten Free for Celiacs, and was very pleased when the host immediately offered me the GF menu. Not as reassured, however, after I ordered the shrimp skewer from that menu and they served it with non-GF sauce so that I had to send it back. She did check to see if the pickles had gluten, too. So, I chanced it, since we had made the trip down there specifically because they advertise their GF menu, but am not certain it truly was safe for me (do they make the GF rolls and food on the same counters as the regular stuff? Not clear from menu, servers, or website). My husband really enjoyed his udan bowl, and our friend liked the sushi he ordered, as well. Mine tasted just fine, but I just don't know that I want to keep paying a la carte prices for things I can't be sure aren't glutening me. Probably better for others without this limitation.

Quick business lunch, sushi was as good as always, but this time we tried the robata ... fantastic!
Beef rib on skewers melts in the mouth, egg-plant was delicious and the chicken was exquisite.
New fan of robata! (Japanese BBQ, we had to google it)

Had reserved banquette/booth seating for a special birthday celebration. Spoke to staff on two separate occasions. Upon arrival (on time), discovered tables had been given away to two couples..seated separately. Our party of six was seated to the only table left which was closest to the door. Sure they gave free mochi to my daughter & friends plus a gift card to my daughter. However, that still didn't take away the less than desirable seating for a special occasion and the fact that the staff had ignored/forgotten my request and my two phone calls.

The restaurant was so hot.. I was fanning myself the whole time and the poor servers were running around. Can't imagine. That's when I discovered they don't have AC so keep that in mind when going in the summer time. Mmmm eating sushi in a hot room....

I was here on happy hour & their prices are outrageous!!! Their food was mediocre. Shortly after being seated, there was a horrible smell that permeated the whole restaurant. My server was excellent as that was the only positive highlight. I would likely never return.

Always excellent nigiri... as someone who usually eats a lot though, it would be nice if they did some form of a nigiri platter or something as it usually costs 20-30 dollars more for me to eat here than almost all other sushi places.

The food was excellent! The Tonkatsu Curry Ramen is one of the best ramen experiences in Minneapolis. The robata and sushi are also good and an excellent option if some of the party have restricted diets (this is one of the few places where a group with vegans and keto diet people can both find something good to eat). The staff was also great and very patient with explaining various meal options.

My only issue was with the noise --- the place has terrible acoustics and yet plays very loud music. It's kind of an echoey din and made it very difficult for us to hold a conversation during dinner.

Good food, interesting menu and great raman. It is very loud in the restaurant though and that made it hard to hear around our 6 person table. But it was fun to try different things, it just took a long time to get your food for the amount of people in the restaurant. But I woudl still go back.
