    Quite expensive for not particularly special. Drinks were spilled coming to the table. Fried spring rolls were burnt. They brought the lobster tail tom yum to the table (in lots of delicious sauce!) *in the shell* with no knife or other implement to remove the shell. We eventually got it apart and cut it up with the side of a spoon, without spilling the sauce. The udon was good, and the drinks tasted fine. Overall, it's okay, but I wouldn't recommend it and we won't be going back.

    Food quality is fair at best, but very expensive. Just moved to the area from LA and was looking forward to some good sushi, but this wasn’t it. Tried a number of menu items; the dumplings were pretty good. Everything else was mediocre at best and very overpriced. Looks like I’m still looking for quality Asian restaurants in the area….

    They have a lot to work on. The eggplant appetizer had burnt raw parts that were inedible. The rice bowls lacked flavor, care or opportunity to be better. We had a very nice waitress, but was not enough to make the meal enjoyable.

    The food was OUTSTANDING. Everything we ordered was full of flavor and delicious. It was a tad too loud in there, in my opinion at least. The waitstaff is excellent, very knowledgeable when it comes to questions about the menu. I will definitely be back.

    Very tasty food and imaginative cocktails. We came early and they were able to accommodate us. The service was gracious and they went out of their way to make up for a missing order, so we got a free dish and didn’t even ask for it. This place is clearly popular.

    Steak was good, but avoid the xiao long baos which were soggy and mushy, not at all comparable to the ones you can get in Los Angeles. Decor and ambiance were nice and the place was crowded (so a bit noisy if you’re looking for a place to have a real conversation.)

    Meh. The food was fine. Maybe we miss ordered, but felt like everything we ordered was a pile of rice. Hence the name I guess.

    Food was very good gut service was poor. Inexperienced and poorly trained wait staff. Waitress really didn’t know to cut the foil off the top of the wine bottle before pulling the cork. Very limited wine selection

    Food was fine, not great, and the wine list was horrific. I understand having a sake list, but when your sake list is greater than your wine list, I would have to question why. Just my opinion

    Such a lovely place! I took my 10 year old on a mommy daughter date. We both loved the service and the food. The place is great for any occasion! The ambiance, food, and service were excellent! I’ll definitely be back to eat. I’d highly recommend for date night, business meetings, hanging out with friends, or for simply enjoying quality time with your kiddo.

    First off, the staff was outstanding - they were polite and nice to accommodate us with an infant. The food was excellent, we had the California and Salmon rolls, which were to die for. We experimented with the nigiri, but it wasn’t our cup of tea but I’m sure it’ll hit the spot for most people. We also shared the cod Thai curry, which was the perfect balance of spiciness and umami.

    New-ish to Ann Arbor (recently celebrated their 1 year anniversary), we were very pleasantly surprised by the outstanding quality and uniqueness of the food. Service was excellent and provided great recommendations. There wasn't anything we didn't love. We eat out a lot and have a very very high bar for 5/5 stars (mostly Michelin-starred restaurants), so it's not a dis to give them is a solid 4 stars. Definitely will return to try other items.

    They need to repaint tables or cover them. We were told they are permanently sticky from wipes during covid. It gets all over your hands, utensils etc and is annoying. The dinner is then wiped down smells like a hospital. Fabulous food though.
