I was expecting much better food because of some of the reviews, but the ramen was terrible and the rolls were sloppy. Overall, the place was pretty shabby--even a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Japan might be better maintained.

Great food it takes a while to get the food after ordering for take away but it's worth waiting. I recommend picking up lunch if you work in the area. Five star in my book

Do yourself a favor amd walk away. Close to the worst rolls i have had in over 10 years. If you must eat there, run down the street and get a protien bar to have while your friend finish eating.

Food is delicious , fresh and NOT expensive !!! Seriously the best spot for good Japanese food! My kids love sweet potato fries! My favorite is Chicken Teriyaki Burger - heaven in your mouth ! The place is clean. They are very busy during the lunch time - always huge line.

Went there twice for lunch. Spicy tuna burger is nice. Sushi not bad. Not exactly a gourmet food but for a quick lunch while running it's a good value for money.

I like their burgers and noodles. They also have good rolls but they are $10. They have beers and many different sauces which I like
