We loved Cheu Noodle Bar which, sadly, is closed, so we trekked down to Cheu Fishtown, the mother ship In Fishtown. It was worth the trip but there were some drawbacks. We were seated in the alleyway between Nunu and Cheu and the music was so loud we couldn't hear each other talk. Next time we will ask for seating on the street -- we are not yet ready to sit inside a restaurant, given the Delta variant. The happy hour pricing was great and our nice waitress (who was great in every way) gave us the happy hour pricing though we were on the cusp of the time. The appetizers were great though I don't quite understand the fries. All the appetizers were delicious but why fries with cheese and no oriental touch? The cocktails were expensive and mediocre. The glasses weren't chilled and the drinks weren't cold either or very interesting in themselves: they were like a mix from a bottle. We had "Eye of the Tiger" and it was meh. The sushi was just okay. The rice was dry and the fish wasn't very flavorful. It was expensive as good sushi should be but it wasn't good sushi. I had the rice bowl with beets (not salmon) and it was terrific. Next time, we'll skip the fancy cocktails and have the dishes we were accustomed to from the Cheu Noodle Bar.

The seafood ramen was a bit sweeter than we’d like, and the chicken dumplings were great but too many flavors for me. We liked the maki and would like to go back to try more ramen.

Always amazing food! Although I feel like our server could’ve accommodated our party of 5 by adding one extra Rangoon to the plate of 4.

This was another outstanding meal at Cheu and Nunu. We sat in Nunu, which was super cozy and cute. The food and service were absolutely perfect and I'm still dreaming of those pork belly buns (drool emoji). Love this in my neighborhood.

Delicious and creative food! I love eating here. The servers are always upbeat and kind, the food started to come out within minutes of ordering (which is awesome when you have two small hungry kids with you), and the atmosphere is so fun. We got the charred broccoli, the corn rangoons, fried chicken pacman buns, milkbread toast, buttered noodles and side of pork for the kids - everything was amazing. Highly recommend.

Great food and great service with acceptable pricing. However I do wish that Cheu didn't use menus with red font because the lighting inside also has a red hue, so it's kind of hard to read the menu.

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.

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.
