    They left the mayo out that the skin formed and it turned yellow. Sushi wasn’t fresh. The cauliflower was served cold with the cod being lukewarm at best. Best thing was the frozen grapes.

    I was hesitant when I found out they had changed their restaurant direction and food service style because I loved the original or now old approach. However, trying their new dinner style I felt they upheld their incredible food dishes and even went above and beyond on the service. Ron was an incredible server and thought it was an amazing experience!

    Went there to celebrate a late valentines day dinner. Lighting inside was very comfortable and the service was some of the best I've experienced. I wouldn't call the food 10/10 but it was definitely very yummy. For context, we ordered the assorted aburi sushi and decided to get another platter of just the salmon aburi. Got 2 of the non-alcoholic drinks which were both quite citrusey but complimented the relatively sweet sushi we had. Finished it with a curry bibimbap and was quite satisfied.

    Our food was just really bad - all of it. The gyoza was rubbery and chewy, the agedashi tofu had a weird rubbery coating on it (mochi?) that was hard to eat, the karage was really salty..the edamame was ok but it's hard to screw that up. We had really high hopes based on the reviews and recs online but were majorly disappointed.

    Got in before 12 and the place had maybe a handful of guests. Despite getting there and ordering early, our food didn’t come until about 45 minutes later. I had to get takeout to finish my meal, as I rushed back to the office. Would’ve liked to know if the wait on an item is 45 minutes in advance of ordering.
