    They force you to spend at least $20 and suggest a 15-20% tip as though you weren't going to give them one. Food was mediocre.

    Mentaiko spagetti = best comfort food ever. Also tried hamachi kama for first time and I will be sure to order it next time.

    Good miso ramen and gyoza. Staff was attentive. And they spoke English quite well.

    Ordered delivery from here - potato salad and beef tongue are pretty good appetizers, and the chirashi really is a huge portion. Pretty expensive, but a good late night sushi option.

    Authentic yet disappointing. But the included tip policy is good for society.

    Don't come here. This was once the best izakaya in town, but has hired incompetent and RUDE staff. Awful. I recommend you find a Spanish tapas bar somewhere if you want small dishes and the like.

    Try the skewers, they are quite amazing. Chef did a great job of letting those natural flavors shine.

    If you're in the mood to sing and eat, they actually have karaoke rooms on the second floor.

    An extreme lack of service and false advertising. Nobody knows English and they lack hospitality.

    Come hungry for lunch specials. You will get a lot of food. Chirashi bowl and sura tanmen is very satisfying here.

    Try the Satoimo Deep Fried - This is by far one of my favorite snacks. It's actually not on the menu, because it's not a commonly sought-after dish. But it simply is a crave dish, SO GOOD! (via @Foods
