Tips

  • Do not ask questions, just order the omakase at $20 and brace yourself for a culinary storm of awesomeness.
  • Invest in the chef's omakase (seafood's the focus here) and watch as a pile of inventive plates arrive to the table. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Yep, omakase. Ranges from $15 - $30, but any amount paid seems to translate to "we'll feed you until you die". The kimchi, ojingoh, and pork buns are a definite highlight before your untimely demise.
  • From @mrgan: "Extremely quirky Japanese/Korean izakaya. Small, dark, loud, showing violent movies. The food is salty, spicy, and seafood-heavy. Get omakase (chef's choice), $20 per person."
  • It's the new Nuki! Order Omakase, order a drink, don't piss off Janice.
  • get the Omikase....and enjoy
  • Omakase was a lot of fun!! You never know what you are going to get! Everything was unique
  • A great experience, great drinks, fantastic atmosphere and real tasty food.
  • Drinks!!! ... And food!
  • Drinks! A glorious selection of sake.
  • Splurge and go for the $25
  • Not a foodie destination.
  • Don't ask. Just eat. And dream about the food for two weeks. Bravo.
  • Omakase or bust! Chef decides, then serves it to you in courses, kinda. 15 to 30 dollars per person, but well worth it!
  • Ordering anything other than the omakase is insanity.
  • Tuesday noodle night. $5 for noodle bowl special, drink purchase required.
  • Highlights: jellyfish, baked mussels, kimchi bun and the nori buttered eggplant. Skip the steak, crab claws and miso soup.
  • If you have a party of 4+, arrive early 5:30/6pm or prepare to be separated. They won't take you until everyone is there so arrive together.
  • $15 omakase is the best bang for your buck. Happiness cocktail lives up to its name.
  • Try the Omakase - This is probably one of the best bar eating experiences I've had in this town. Thanks to Portland Monthly for recommending this place.
