Foursquare Tips

  • NOT a sushi place.
  • The chicken okonomi yaki was incredible, as is the cherry blossom cocktail. And my waitress, Renee was delightful. Ask for her and tip her well!
  • Potato croquettes were amazing, as were the garlic green beans.
  • I honestly don't think you can go wrong here with anything, the food is fantastic and the service is equallt astounding.
  • Sama Zama roughly translates into "a little of this, a little of that."
  • food's good, but these are the worst chopsticks i've ever had the displeasure of using.
  • Just in town visiting. I wish they were in the city I live in. Very good service. Very clean, very friendly. In plan on coming here next time I'm in KC.
  • The ribs are wonderful and the meat falls right off. The wine marinated steak is also tender and bursting with flavor. I can't pick a favorite!
  • Sunday = 1/2 off grilled stuff. Wed = cheap udon/ramen day. Yum!
  • Amazing food and good value - get here before it blows up!
  • Any of the OKONOMI YAKI's are amazing! And get them with the fish flakes.
  • This is personally my favorite place to get ramen in KC. The spicy ramen is actually spicy!
  • No more okonomiyaki! Disappointed. Takoyaki was overcooked, ramen was very subpar. Unique atmosphere and has potential but the food doesn't cut it, from someone who visits Japan often.
  • Came across by accident and loved it. Their Asian pancakes are delicious.
  • The okonomiyaki here is amazing!! Happy Hour from 3-6pm everyday. Take advantage of their lunch specials from 11-3pm!
  • Rice balls were delicious, as was the pork potstickers, and pork ramen.
  • Don't eat the ramen ...
  • Best Ramen Ever!!!! And the Okonomi Yaki is fantastic.
  • Closed on Mondays
  • The spicy vegetarian ramen is outstanding. Probably the best ramen in KC. Pricy at $15 a bowl but damn oh so good.
