    Turned up at 12:40 to an almost empty restaurant, only to be told they couldn't seat us until 2:30. There was 1 table eating... your loss Inamo

    Fun way of having Asian dinner. Definitely go for the small plates. Juices do not taste fresh.

    Stay away from the Gyoza! Dough was frozen and fried to a hard inedible blob. Skip the seared tuna too - too salty, hard and obviously not good quality fish. The dumplings and sushi were tasty though.

    This restaurant hasn't been given any attention since 2010. Tired decor, chipped plates, old technology and mediocre food.

    Food is acceptable however in the age of the iPad, the tabletop technology is now feeling a little tired and cumbersome.

    I higly NOT recommend this place. Ordering is such a pain with their 1990s computer system . Food is average bad and service is terribly long (had to ask 5 times to get water)

    Excellent food, great interactive idea for ordering food however being told to leave after 90 minutes upon entering is a bit rude!

    Food is very average and once you get over the initial novelty of the interactive menu, the whole experience just feels a bit cold and impersonal. Glad I tried it but I won't be going back.

    Food okay but overpriced. The table gimmick gets boring. They publish their Foursquare deal outside but it's not clear you can only get it in the bar. There are better sushi places in Soho.

    Got my reservation canceled. No apologies because it's busy I only get to wait and not say anything. When you finally get to your table you better be (very) patient and food is only average. Lame.
