Tables are very close together and our neighbors smelled overwhelmingly of weed which ruined the end of the meal, but otherwise a good experience. Great deals at happy hour!

I get that there is very little space, especially if you are sat near the bar, but the fact that the staff at the restaurant/bar area did nothing to discourage people from crowding where we were sitting was a bit of a disappointment. the food is exquisite, the variety and the fact that our gluten intolerance diet can be supported is much appreciated.

So let’s start with the drink. I got the Nu Martini. I liked it for creativity but not my favorite. Sushi and sushimi were great! Can’t go wrong with that. Although, for the price, you could get similar quality at an authentic Japanese restaurant for a fraction of the cost.
Wings were gross. I love wings yet I couldn’t finish these. They tasted fatty and now quite fried long enough. Not to mention they’re serviced with Greek yogurt. Love the ambiance. But I don’t think I would return here. Sorry

Eggplant curry rice bowl had almost no salt and the rice of the rolls was warm. It was quite disapointing, specially because I had a very good experience at Cheu, which is Nunu sister restaurant.

This was a suprising gem to us that I'm sad we found on our last day in the city. Our waitress was awesome, and recommended different sakes to try along with the apps. We went during happy hour, so they had a great deal on traditional yakatori and some different things (try the matza ball scapple!). Great selection of sake and beer, the citywide special is awesome here.

They also are partnered with the Chinese style restaurant next door, so do both if you're hanging out in Fishtown.

Unfortunately this place has already reached its peak and is going downhill. I’ve been five or six times since it opened and this time it was much worse. Poorer menu and impolite servers.
