    The spicy cream chicken is so ridiculoudly good, I dream about it. The name is a little weird/misleading but the taste is amazing. I usually get it as a bowl with lo mein.

    Nothing special... Miso soup is good but it's pretty hard to mess it up... Sushi/rolls are not impressive, pretty bland for the price.

    Our go-to favorite place to eat downtown.... as long as it's TO GO. It's always quite packed and noisy inside. There's a frequent customer touch screen inside to earn rewards.

    Tried a sushi lunch combo and it said 3 rolls but it's only 4 pieces each so more like 2 rolls. It was ok. Average. Maybe. Their bento boxes are well used and makes the meal look unappetizing.

    Benton's "Envy" Roll was very good. If you like fruit in your sushi, the "Envy" roll has a generous amount of Kiwi. The "Bali Hai Mango" has mango and Coconut shavings on top. They're both refreshing.

    Great food at a decent price. But there's an insanely loud hvac fan and no music so the ambience is a bit rough on the ears.

    The Plaza doesn't validate parking anymore! So If you're dining in at night or on the weekend, prepare to pay $10 if you're parking in the Plaza garage!
