My husband and I go there a lot so we noticed that what we usually order tasted different and he was unsatisfied with his dinner...must’ve changed some kitchen staff

Dinner plates arent the best, service was pretty average. Appetizers were good. Desserts were good but small. Prices were very fair although the skewers were tiny. Not as good as the reviews said. Very average japanese spot in my honest and humble opinion

Fun spot to visit any night of the week. I was particularly pleased that they were open pretty late. It’s a cozy, casual place with good cocktails and a very wide variety of snacks for very reasonable prices. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I’m happy to have another late night retreat to add to my list.

I wish they will bring back fried Ika rings.
This hasn’t been placed back on the menu because of covid 19 limited menu.

Other than that the place os always great for any occasion.

Excellent food, please try the "bento box" for $20.00 one the guests order that it looked amazing. I ordered Udon soup and a spider roll.

This was our 2nd choice since Sampan was fully booked, 5 stars.

To begin, the atmosphere of the resturant was very dark but quiet. The table of 4 was small but had enough room for the food. The service was outstanding. If you are hungry and want food fast, then this is perfect for you. You get your food very quickly and the service is very attentive to your needs. The best food I ate was the katsu bowl and the lamb kabobs. However, the ramen soup and the sauteed mushrooms were very bland. Therefore, the food is a hit or a miss. The only strange part of the resturant was the bathroom. Most of the walls, floor and toilet were black. In addition, the floor was very sticky. Overall, I would try it again but it would not be my first choice to go.

With reservation. Some of our dishes were very good. Other dishes were either poor choices or just not very good.

Food is great . Service was okay. Also Asked for our meal to be packed to go and it was brought back on the same plate. Seating Area is very tight and it was hard to have a personal date night since the people next to us were so close they could hear our whole conversion and kept interjecting.
