We were staying at the Silver Cloud Inn on Lake Union and this restaurant in just down the street within walking distance. Good service and the food was very good. My husband ordered their Bento Box special and the portions were huge and tasty. I had the tempura entrée which I really enjoyed.

Had a group of 7, walked in and were seated in no time at all. Our waitress Alice was great, got our ordered in and the food came out lightening fast. I had the Lake Union Bento, come hungry if you order that.
