    Meh service. If you're a sushi expert, don't eat here. Some of the worst I've ever had in LA. Spend some extra $ and go down the street to sushi roku or around the corner for nobu instead.

    It's a little cramp during the lunch crowd. It's a small space and lots of patrons. Be sure to come early to get seats.

    Melt in yo mouth. Chicken and oysters, tsukune, pork chashu, shrimp toast were all delish. Order the ramen half-size! Black ramen ftw

  • Michael U.
    Mediocrity and undeserving price are what you should expect. However the if you grow starving, the food would be divine… just like any other dish by any crap cook.

    Beef tongue. Reasonably priced too. Enjoy.

    If you dont like something they tell you to suck it. Spicy ramen had a sliver of pork and the broth tastes like burnt ball sack. Had ramen 200x better at Chabuya. Creamy shrimp were good though!

  • Mauricio
    Order the Homemade Organic Tofu (highly tasty) but don't serve it until you wait at least 5 mins 'til it solidifies! Better yet just ask your server or let him or her handle it.
