The small plates were good, ramen was a bit strange with the kimchi and the coconut curry was just okay. Just a personal preference but it felt like waitress was rushing us out of the restaurant

My guests arrived earlier than the reservation and still managed to get a table. So it's good to know they won't hold you at the front until the reservation start time, or until the full party shows up.

We sat outside and it was very lovely; good music and good energy, nice ambience. Our server was very knowledgeable and answered all of our very particular questions on the drink menu. Everything was phenomenal, from the rangoon to the beet salad to the signature rolls. The yuba roll looked like it was wrapped with human skin and that was fun.

I could see myself venturing to fishtown again and spending time there.

Loved the unique, trendy atmosphere and cool drinks! I really enjoyed the fried chicken bao buns (aka Pacman Buns on the menu). Would also recommend the Thai Basil Smash as a drink. Great place for a date night!

Their happy hour is an awesome way to approach their menu. Their Ramen is 17 dollars, but I was able to try some of their miso broth that I ordered off their children's menu.
From just that taste alone, the ramen will be worth it. I"ll be back for sure.

Had Maki (Tuna and veggie) excellent, Rangoons are my favorite, and chicken lettuce wraps were both top notch. Had reservations and we were seated immediately. Good time and can't wait to return.

Went to Cheu and NuNu w/ my BF. The staff was attentive and the food was quiet tasty (fried chicken buns are outstanding). It’s also cool that you can order from both menus. Oh and please try the purple imperial...one of the tastier drinks I’ve ever had (I do wish it was twice the size).

Out of the 2 Japanese beers on draught? Food runners, including Mike were great: friendly, efficient and nice. Server was having a bad day (my guess) and was surly and curt.

75 minutes for a table was a bummer especially since we were consistently ordering but I’m glad it was busy for Cheu enough to need the table back. Definitely plan your meal and drinks ahead of time if you’re going on a date because they’re supremely strict with their 75 minute table time
