Not as good as my Jewish grandmothers cooking, nor is it as good as other Ramen/Japanese food I’ve had. Nonetheless an Interesting combo done very well, but didn’t meet my expectations

We always find the food at Shalom Japan creative, fresh, and delicious, and the staff work very hard to make the place welcoming and cordial. We went on Valentine's Day which was great, but the place was packed, the food took awhile to come out, and though we knew it would be a limited prix-fixe menu, we realized we would always prefer to make surprising choices from Shalom Japan's great and interesting menu. So probably would skip the prix-fixe next time and just go on a regular evening. But it is a GREAT restaurant!

I was curious about what the cuisine would be like, and it was good especially the challah was basically crack level and I will go back and order again and again. I did not like that I made a reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes for our table. What was the point of making a reservation?

The food was fun and delicious - an great blend of Jewish & Japanese. The service excellent. Serving sizes for the appetizers are on the small side so recommend ordering a couple extra.

We were there on a holiday, and they had a prix fixe menu, which was not a good deal. We had two hot pot dishes as the main course, which just didn't have enough flavor or meat. After $58 a person (before drinks, tax, and tip), we left disappointed and still somewhat hungry.

Definitely go for the happy hour specials—they are a great deal ($8 for $13 cocktails, $2/duck wing when normally they are $18 for 3)
