    I've been coming to this spot for over 6 years. 50% off delicious sushi all day every day and 50% off draft beers after 10pm.

    dramatic price increase on ramen&sushi and they raised the minimum to get 50% off sushi to $20 per person, which comes down to $10 per person :| its a business tactic.

    They recently raised their prices 30%, which puts really negates their 50% off sushi deal to regular prices for comparable sushi. Not much of a deal to me anymore so I'll personally be looking around

    Good happy hour ($7 pitchers after 7PM) and good sushi and ramen at reasonable prices but the main waiter is such an asshole; their tip policy and table minimum policy are so stupid.

    The half off deal is kinda a scam bc the sushi is 2x the price of what it should be. Sushi was average, chicken yakitori was very tender and probably the best thing we got

    I got a 18 dolars dish thinking it would be 9 but it was already discounted. Conclusion: SHITY sushi for HIGH PRICE.

    Surprisingly good ramen and sushi for a good price. If they repainted the line green wall, it'd be perfect.

    Half off sushi but had to wait a long time for the food to come out. Prices were a lot higher than other sushi places

    Come after 10PM for sure. Also try the Tako yaki from the appetizers. Crazy good.

    Get soup salad combo with any 3 rolls for $3.75. Split with a friend - one gets soup, one gets salad. Great deal.

    You can ask for warm green tea instead of cold water - it's also free.

    Get the ramen burger but beware it's messy as all hell. Totally worth the dry cleaning bill.

    Not the greatest Sushi, but the half off discount is their only selling point. Service is okay, not so great you have to get their attention a couple of times for things like napkins and water.

    Kitchen messed up our order so they gave us free sake and Kirin. Win win.
  • Lisa R.
    The ramen took so long to come out. They actually forgot to put in one of our orders too. Also, our food came out at all different times- one order came out 10 minutes before another's dish came out!

    Good sushi. Too bad the prices have gone up by a dollar or two in the recent months. At 50% off though, still can't beat it.

    Ramen burger $7 ... Expected the ramen to be crispier but it was super soggy.

    You get 50% off once your bill is over $20. It's worthy!

    Beyond disgusting. Don't sit in the garden, you will just be looking at 4 orange cement walls with a rat or two running along the top.

    Be aware that cold noodles is NOT a quick lunch. Allow at least 20 minutes for them to make it. Order Something else to hold you over if you have time.

    They increased the prices here... Sucks. It's still 50% off but minimum is now $20. I came here for the prices not so much the quality of sushi...

    Seafood ramen $15. Not worth it, very cheap on the seafood. They cut each shrimp into tiny pieces... Really???!

    Its 50% sushi all day and 50% off some drinks 10PM onwards but they treat you terribly. Friend's entire order was wrong and they wouldn't take it back and plan to charge him anyway.
