The tonkatsu ramen is alright. The broth is pretty good but the pork is roasted cubed pork belly instead of chashu slices. It's a little drier than chashu so it was not as flavorful and is chewy. Service was fast and good.

Went here with friends for restaurant week. I suspect that they were understaffed, because we had difficulty in ordering a second round of drinks, asking for a fork/knife, and having room on the table. It also took a very long time to get the check and to pay. Food was hit or miss. I really enjoyed the seaweed salad, but the entree did not do much for me. For restaurant week, the quantity of food was nice but nothing was exceptional either way. The drinks were great, though. A friend ordered a lovely bottle of unfiltered sake and the midnight emperor was a gorgeous looking drink. The ambiance is very cool, the murals are beautiful, but the acoustics are pretty bad. I couldn't hear my party well, but could hear the table two down just fine. The music was also loud - much more club-like than what I'd expect from a restaurant. I left feeling pretty exhausted from the sound and frustrated.

It was very good and nice, the server was very nice and helpful she recommended some very nice rolls. We also had the crispy wontons. I really liked those as well. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in the area

Upon entering, I grabbed hand sanitizer and the attendants there looked confused, as if I knew what I was coming in for. I was waiting as the sign said "wait to be seated". They told me to sit wherever I wanted to. The place itself is slightly dark ambience, where not much light is around compared to outside. You have to wait a while for your eyes do get adjusted to the room. As I sit down, the waiter did not explicitly give me directions on what to do, but I was able to understand that the menu is the QR code. While reading the menu, it was slightly confusing to me as I did not know if the bottom of the page had a correlation with the next column of the menu, or continue scrolling down to see the rest of the section. Food: Upon arrival, the person serving my food (not the waiter) threw the plate to the table, not placing it gently on the table. My actual waiter did do this when my second plate arrived.

I've only had sushi a handful of times and eating this sushi was the best I've had! Even my friend, who eats sushi often, thought this was delicious! We also ate the short ribs and they were sooooo gooood! We tried their Irish mule drink that was a special and it was so refreshing and flavorful. The only thing I would say was a drag about this resturant was the wait time to get our check and to close out the check. We waited about 15 minutes after we gave them the check to close out. Other than that, the food was great and we will be coming back!

The pork bun was not how I expected it to look like. The flavor of the pork could have been better. The other items that went with the pork bun did give it flavor. The main dish mostly actually good. The lemon wedges did take the main flavor away on some fish, but it's good to have that there for people who like a little acidity. The white rice actually had flavor. That's a plus. I was not able to tell the flavor, but it was certainly different compared to how others places prepare their white rice. Upon paying, i was given the recipe through a rusty, old box that looks as if it was stolen from American Express (the company logo is on there). That was not too amusing. Overall, if I could, I give this place 3.5 stars. 4 stars since it rounds up. The lightening could be improved, especially for someone who's coming in, when outside is very bright. The method of providing the receipt needs to be improved."
