    The pricing seems too good to be true but that is because the meat quality very poor. I ordered the ramen and gyoza and both tasted like something was "off". It's a fun place to go but the food quality has definitely slipped.

    Pretty busy on a Saturday afternoon for a 4.30 pm reservation, the restaurant was pretty full. We ordered the Chef's Choice spread for $100. Starters came quickly. The portion of the meats were small for 2pp but because of the starters were filling, we left full. Overall, everything was tasty and the service was good. I'd defintely go back. Make sure you make a reservation!

    Coming from London, my friends and I were seated in a private room and it was a phenomenal experience to be a part of Japanese culture. Service was professional, polite, and efficient. They accommodated us well. Our waiter Kittipong was helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and offered great recommendations. He was attentive and regularly checked up on us if we needed anything else. Top-notch food and drinks were delicious. My only suggestion would be to make the private room a bit more brighter. Overall, would recommend this restaurant to other friends!

    I been to this restaurant in 3 different places (North and South California). This one is by far my favorite one in the inside because of the looks. However, their portions are wayyy too small compared to all the other locations I’ve been to. For example, my spouse loves “Toro beef” on the menu and gets it in every location we stop in. They usually give her 6-7 pieces whereas this location gave her 3-4. Other than that the service is pretty good. Extra info: I currently use their app (highly recommend it if you love this restaurant). Within the app you get offers and rewards you can claim. I used an offer that provided me with Happy Hour prices for the entirety of the meal. My friends and I ordered 3 drinks and 2 appetizers, and before the server left, I showed my server the offer and asked if I could claim it. He assured me I could and I “claimed” the offer so my server can see the number for him to put it on our tab. Meaning the offer cannot be unclaimed and it would expire in 1h. He left and came back with our drinks saying that he couldn’t use the code on neither the aptz or drinks. He called the manager and the manager said the same. I didn’t make a big deal. But I felt like the could’ve canceled the order and done a new one with the offer code or at least gave us a discount for the things.

    Have had a good experience with this restaurant group previously, but this visit was sub par. Our cooking plate was not switched out at all and when the bill came it was almost twice as much as it should have been. Had to get up and talk to the server to get it fixed.

    Called ahead to ensure there was an elevator because it's on the 2nd floor and I was coming with two disabled people. The atrium next door where the elevator is, was locked. The hostesses snickered to each other when I told them, and insisted we just take the stairs then. The manager was no help either, just pointing in the direction of the elevator. Finally was able to get in a service elevator after arguing with two security guards who insisted we weren't allowed in. Was with two disabled people, so that did not feel great. Reservation was for five, but none of the tables in this restaurant can comfortably sit more than four people. Ended up sitting with one cheek off the booth for the entire meal and none of us are big people. I tried to order a drink with vodka and was told they only* have Grey Goose even though their menu has two cheaper vodkas on it as well. I had a miserable time at my birthday dinner.

    We had a late reservation and from the moment we were sat down felt very rushed. Waiter had very little patience. Rest of the staff rushed us as well. Before we were done eating the staff was sweeping the floors all around us. Kicking up dust. This all took away from how good the food was.
