The food was very good. We sampled robatayaki, pork bao's, gyoza and everyone in our party ordered ramen to get a feel for the menu. Everything we ordered was delicious. Our server was suggestive and attentive while not overbearing. Great experience from the food and service side, however the pricing for most items is very high. I get it's a new restaurant in downtown Worcester, trying to cater to the upscale hip crowd. But $8 for one small pork bao and ramen bowls (w/ adding on chashu pork, because their ramen doesn't come standard with their namesake) for $22???
Good food but overpriced.

One of the best restaurants I have ever been to! The dining area was very clean. The atmosphere was energetic and upbeat and the decorations and mural were gorgeous! Our waitress was very polite and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. I order the pork bun and spicy miso ramen and they both tasted AMAZING!! The food was a little pricier than some of the other ramen restaurants I’ve been to but it was well worth it. 10/10 would recommend and I will most definitely be going back, hopefully very soon!

AMAZING!!! The food, the drinks, the service was just all so perfect. The vibes are great. When we walked in I was blown away by the decor and ambiance. Our server Aliyah was so attentive, personable and hilarious! The food is so delicious and flavorful. The portions are definitely smaller that regular restaurant portions but we were cool with that. Oh and the playlist was on point!

I can not say enough good things about this place! The Brussel Sprouts may be the best thing I have had in years, followed by the Ghost Ramen. I went a bit crazy with the ordering, should have spaced it out over the next few visits, this will be on the rotation for sure. Best meal I have had since the Girl and the Goat! Our server was top notch, on top of everything, felt like part of the group, thank you again!

The food was incredible. I had to wait an extra 25 minutes even though I had a reservation but the food definitely made up for the wait. Love the place, can’t wait to go back and try other items on the menu. 5stars overall

Service was great. Food is excellent! We ordered so much. Pork belly bao had fluffy tender pork belly with a rich broth and perfect noodles. I was a bit bummed that the chicken skin skewer wasn't available. While there are several vegetable skewers, a few are wrapped in bacon. I would like veggie without meat. Next time I will have to ask. The only drawback was the music was quite loud which made it hard in spots to have a conversation.

We were able to find street parking just before 7pm, though we were prepared to park in a garage. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised by a very modern, comfortable upscale looking restaurant (the music was great). Our American flight attendant waiter was a hoot and very attentive. The food was great! The steamed veggie and chicken gyozas were delicious. I had the ghost pepper tonkatsu ramen was super spicy and delicious. Had to finish off with mango sorbet to cool down the heat! We really liked it!

They spared no expense on the interior. The vibe is kick a**. We had Braden as our waiter (and will request him moving forward). He was SUPER knowledgeable AND excited about his product. I loved that we got to choose our own saki cup - cool! He suggested a great syrah for me, too. The food was fresh and flavorful and the presentation was on point. We are doing sober October so can't wait to try some of the mocktails and glad they have that as an option! Welcome to the neighborhood.

got the spicy miso ramen and broth was not seasoned enough and the noodles were overcooked. Pork belly skewer was not marinated well and too chewy. Servers were very tentative- tried to take away a plate I was eating twice. Environment and presentation was beautiful though, but I will not be going back.
