The food was good, though nothing was amazing. (Their food truck food was better, frankly, particularly the Crack Salad and the Chicken.)

But I had a good experience overall, just not one I'd be in a huge hurry to repeat. There was no "It Dish" that I'll find myself wanting again in a few days.

I found this place based on the location-it was close to a show we were seeing. I liked the look of little tapas but Asian style. The place was small but the the food was quite good and the service was also good. We tried about 7 different dishes and was happy with all the choices. However the highest recommendation is the tiger balls.

It’s not the restaurant’s fault. There was an explosion happened half block away so it was a total black out in the restaurant. We were there to celebrate my birthday and it was supposed to be my treat... felt very embarrassing that night.
The waitress handled the situation very professionally. But I don’t think I will go back again.

Nice clean place. Very minimalist. Comfortable seating. The service was excellent, the waitress super kind explained to us every dish. Dumplings were average, the salad was very good and the sushi was ok. Asahi beer which I love and nice cocktails,

Overall it was great! Good food and cocktails, friendly service. I think they could have used another server, as we waited over an hour for some of our food.

It's amazing to see this place always full. You must plan ahead and make a reservation ... very difficult to find a spot last minute. The food is always amazing. Love to able to try so many things. My friends always want to return.

The wagyu beef was really good for the price. I wanted to order a lot more but all the things I wanted to was deep fried in peanut oil and I’m allergic to nuts which was unfortunate. They should just fry it in regular oil if people are allergic. That’s what kinda upset me cause I wanted to try a lot of things

Get together with girlfriends. Restaurant had good vibe. Music was great. Food was amazing...so tasty, esp the veggie dumplings. Only issue was service. May have been a new server? Didn’t explain menu well 2/3rds of us had heart set on tasting menu. When she returned to take order, we were told whole group had to participate. Service continued to be slow & inconsistent (some hot food right away. Others waited a long time like order hadn’t been put through?).

It is only my second visit and again they did not disappoint. Brought along a couple of friends and they really enjoyed it - one will be bringing his family soon. Our last order seem to take a very long time ... which we did not complain about (we were having a good time chatting) but they did apologize and comped us a couple of desserts. A+++ for service!

We ordered a couple of items including the steak and fish. The appetizers and skewers were really good. However, I feel the steak was alright and fish was too dry. These two (steak and fish) are the most expensive items from the menu.

We had the 10 course tasting menu. It was worth it and given how hungry we were it was perfect. If you’re not starving then the 7 course tasting menu is a better option. Our favourite is the Wagu beef, fried vegetables and tender steak.

Great food, tasty cocktails, excellent service, I'll definitely go again when the need arises for a delicious high end Japanese eating out experience. There's not much else to say when something is done right, it's done right.

I only have one complaint. I wish they did their branding on the take out bags differently. Certainly this isn't the kind of place that necessitates doggie bags, but this was a special need. What was wrong? There was a large ink blob on the corner of the logo which left an inky mess on my date's fingers and mine when we held the bag going home. Why even have the logo on the bag? It seems unnecessary. I know where I just went. The food is tasty enough I won't need the bag for long. Though, thankfully, the bag and the food box were all compostable. So, kudos for that.
