    Sushi rolls were tiny, 6 pieces, and insanely overpriced. Not good either, and tasted like they were purchased from a convenience store. Tempura sweet potato was good and the star of the show which should not be the case.

    A fun environment that seems like a hot spot for college kids and young adults. Seems great for parties/celebrations. The drinks are creative and they have interesting menu items. The food is ok, a little salty and a little lackluster for the price but overall enjoyable.

    Food and service were great. Made a reservation well ahead of time and was seated in the middle of the restaurant next to the world’s most awkward first date. Not a ton of personal space and even our food didn’t fit well on the tiny table. Wish we had a better table, since there were empty tables during our entire meal. Mentioned we we’re staying at the hotel in the OT reservation and during dinner but wasn’t told until checkout the next day that there’s a discount for hotel guests. Probably a great place for larger parties of 4 or 6.

    4 of us had dinner on a Wednesday night and had a great time. The hostess was lovely and our server fantastic, she was present but not overbearing and had the bartender create a drink when one of us couldn’t decide. The food is delicious. Highlights for us were the Brussels sprouts, chicken wings (both sauces) and the veg dumplings.

    Small plates for sharing. Food was very salty for me, but it may be because of what we ordered. Neat vibe and convenient since we were staying at hotel next door.

    $18 for 6 slice sushi rolls that didn’t taste any different than ones from grocery store. Good very small portions. Hip place near concert venue, good drinks but the food wasn’t a good value.

    The food is top notch. There is not one item on the menu you wouldn’t love. The spicy miso ramen is packed with flavor, the karaange chicken is the epitome of crunchy fried chicken, and the potstickers could have kept coming all night. The ambiance, music, mood lighting and decor made this one of my new favorite spots.

    Great food, fun drinks and atomosphere. VERY loud so if you are looking for quiet dinner conversation, may not be the right choice. Overall a fun place for a group dinner out! We went pre-show for an event at MGM Fenway and they were quick and super attentive.

    Food was delicious and vibe was great, but the service was a bit slow. We got a round of food before our drinks came, we had to remind the waitress of everything we ordered twice before she’d remember to bring it. Brought some peoples entrees before others got drinks. Overall they could have been a bit more attentive. But the food was delicious!!!

    Miso soup - perfection! California Roll - best my 18year old granddaughter ever had! Mushroom Noodle Bowl - perfectly balanced - salty, a touch sweet, richly umamimous! Staff friendly, accommodating (we arrived 20 minutes early and were seated immediately.) Service, including explanations of unfamiliar ingredients, impeccable. Vibe is vibrant yet laid back. Colorful lanterns, big screen anime video against the back wall, view of the Verb Hotel and pool, with outdoor tables, warmed by tall cones of flame in heaters. Not overpriced - well-worth every penny. Looking forward to coming back!

    The food was great and we loved the vibes but the service was very slow. Food runners brought our sushi then we waited 15 mins for soy sauce. Then came our ramen but we again were waiting to get our servers attention for spoons. This won’t keep us from returning but my past experience dining here were much better.
