Hubby and I passed by Fort Lee on the way back to NY from out of town. At the time the traffic near GWB was heavy so we decided to stop for some soup. We came to this restaurant on a cold Sunday night. It was quiet this night. It looks like it could accommodate a lot of people. We... More

Opens late for food, young and pretty Asian crowd and a really diverse menu to satisfy all tastes. Enjoyed it especially with James the owner. Food is above average and prices are reasonable for the atmosphere.

This is a ramen house with lots of other dishes other than noodles. There are some fusion dishes too but the routine items such as don-buri (oyakudon), gyoza, miso ramen are consistently good and reliable for mealtime happiness. Be careful during rush hours; be smart and arrive earlier than the crowd so you don't starve waiting.

After reading reviews, i decided to give this place and it really did not live up to the expectations. The food was rushed and tasted weird. I would certainly not return. The ambiance seemed pretty nice though sadly.

A great place to relax after work. It is a place we go regularly with colleagues. The menu is a mix of Japanese and Korean. The service is good and staff are friendly.

They specialize in small plates but there are some entrees to be had. This restaurant is really a drinking establishment, you are supposed to go there with friends buy drinks and enjoy some appetizers and it does that very well. The menu is a mix of Japanese and Korean. The service is good but the food takes a while before... More
