Several of the meals included cream cheese which just seemed odd. No one enjoyed the miso soup. My husband's udon meal (Kai Sen Udon) was odd - he felt like... More

I am not a big fan of fancy asian fare but we ate here twice (once work required, once because our other reservation was messed up) and I actually truly enjoyed my meal both times. My husband / daughter LOVED their apple dessert and we even went back one night JUST for dessert. Service was phenomenal as well!

Food, service and decor were all exceptional! My wife, son and I all had three different meals, as we all shared, it seems as if everything was cooked to perfection and with some contemporary twist. Simply sensational!
