I came with a party of about 15. The service was outstanding, dealing with different arrival times and splitting the check for each of us by item. My ramen was hot spicy and absolutely delicious. I’ll absolutely be back here.

We tried the curry and a few sushi rolls, everything was delicious! The live jazz show makes for a fun ambiance (but don't sit to close if you want to talk)More

Fairly varied menu, with Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese offerings. Many sushi and sashimi options. Six of us chose different selections and all were pleased.

The staff and servers are cheats. They not only stole my credit card as they refused to return it claiming they lost it but also overcharged it. I have reported this place for its fraudulent activity. Be aware and think twice before choosing this place.
