We love coming to this place. Their ramen is the best in town! Rolls menus could stand to make some improvements, but it’s okay for now. We are so glad they opened up this branch closer to us.

Lovely waitress! Helped to understand menu but should have warned us that the Nerd Cocktail was so named because of the huge amount of Nerd candies piled on what might have been a long let cocktail down beneath the candy! The bird bun was very good but quite small. We each had the Odon ramen but one was subbed out the spicy chicken for plain ground chicken. Both soups were spicy however. The soup included a slice of pork belly, a few mushrooms and some ground chicken. Ninety percent cent was ramen noodles and they became a bit monotonous. I guess we felt that $15 for a bowl of ramen soup, served with a plastic soup spoon , chopsticks and a paper napkin on a Formica table was a bit overpriced, especially considering that there was music filling the air. We had had a roll at the Scottsdale Quarter for lunch and enjoyed our experience, but this place is devoid of atmosphere. I felt I had been seated in a fast food place. As Happy Hour had ended at six, our cocktail and beer, together with the bun and two ramens became a $65 check.

I really enjoyed the happy hour menu, a ton of options. It was a group of 8 of us on a “quadruple” date. Food and drinks were amazing. Ambiance was good. Service was good, but I felt like could have been a little better as far as being happy to be there, and setting up the tone for the “personality” of the restaurant. But everyone has bad days so I wouldn’t let that affect me going back.

Good menu. Irregular service. Overpriced for food and dining experience. Happy Hour is more appropriately priced.

Might be the most uncomfortable bar stools I ever sat in.

Great build out though.

Staff was average

Good sushi& poke bowls. Attentive staff, got our good quote quickly.
Music is a little random& low wooden seats indoors are horribly uncomfortable.

Excellent food and drink. Service was also fantastic. Only issue was that nearly all tables are directly blasted by the AC vents which isn’t comfortable and cools the food rapidly.

Overall it was GREAT food! The sushi was fresh, the ramen was delicious and the calamari was OUTSTANDING! We tried just about everything on the happy hour menu - it was really priced well! Only 1 issue, whoever designed the chairs forgot to think about comfort! My butt cheeks were numb after 20 minutes in that flat, wooden stool! Yikes! I could do better decorating than that! It feels like they want us to eat and run! Get some new chairs and we'll be back! :)

First time. The food was great. So was the service. It was a little loud and only 2/3 full. Not sure I want to be there when it is full!

I love this place! Amazing food every time. Truly one of my favorite places to go. Service is always prompt, friendly and accurate, and prices are fair. I will surely be back (I come once a month).
I wish they had cameras on the property parking lot however because another patron hit my car and drove off :(
