  • Dogs are welcome on the patio. they have water bowls for your pooch.
  • Hang out. Have a beer. Order a bit at a time. Enjoy.

  • Order the Yakisoba! With a boiled egg & soy sauce, yumm.
  • Melissa & David are great bartenders!
  • A fantastic little gem! My service was prompt and personal and the food was fantastic. Also Sapporo/Kirin Ichiban/Coedo and Asahi on tap!! Great sakes too!
  • Huge happy hour menu, but it's only 5-6 or late night. The food is so good here.
  • Lunch bento for only $12.50! Korean short ribs, edamame, Gyoza, cabbage salad and a cup of miso soup. Definitely worth the price!!!
  • They have a separate vegan-vegetarian menu! :-)
  • Melissa is a rockstar bartender! Tell her Loras says hi!
  • They recently adjusted their menu so everything is under $12, consisting of many dishes to share, so bring friends and have a feast!
  • I've been craving gyudon for ages. They've added it to the menu! Just one more great reason to visit
  • If you're lucky enough to catch it, get the sake flavored gelato. Unique!
  • Try the Takoyaki, battered octopus with mayo. Absolutely stunning.
  • Frozen from the package gyoza.
  • Amazing food and service in a great atmosphere!
  • The best ramen Ive ever tried! It was an absolute revelation.
  • Not bad, but not really my thing.
